History Of Travel: “The Marketing Of Pan Am” From 1950 – 1980 (Podcast)

Monocle 24 - Monocle's House View podcastMoncocle.com spoke with Tom Geismar, founding partner of Chermayeff & Geismar, one of the top graphic design agencies in the world and the man responsible for the marketing of Pan Am in the 1950’s, 60’s and 70’s.

From the Chermayeff & Geismar website:

Chermayeff & Geismar PanAm Travel Posters New ZealandThe most important aspect of the identity design for Pan Am was to suggest that the name of the airline be changed to “Pan Am” from the long and cumbersome “Pan American World Airways.” The Pan Am logotype in capitals and lower-case letters was also adopted with an accompanying world symbol.

In addition to the corporate identity, our firm designed comprehensive graphics for the airline, including a poster campaign and the menus for the inaugural flight of the Boeing 747.
