The other day the PSFK Team went looking to the past for creative inspiration to share with our readers. We started with tourist attraction and World War 2 warship the USS Intrepid that sits in the Hudson River by New York City. The carrier together with the planes and helicopters on the decks are covered in graphics that date from the 40s through to the 70s. Key places for ideas were:

Plane Tails – bright, simple but effective decal.

Jet-Intakes – warning signs that make you take notice.

Typography – use of fonts for numbering and naming.

Body shapes – elegant ways to re-shape technology.
