New system to take off


Air Canada will be revealing a new entertainment system on board their new Boeing 787 planes, this coming Spring 2014. Scooter (via Spafax Canada) came up with a visual vocabulary to illustrate the various categories travellers get to choose from: films, food, audiobooks… The images were imagined then created as “illustrative photographs”, photos that are so slick that they become akin to illustrations. The result is a unique, smooth, iconic feel that is both charming and contemporary.
