What we did
Direction of Travel is a newspaper that explores the history of airline maps and through those takes a deep dive into the culture of flying. It's a love letter to the rich visual history of flying. Airlines have been charting their networks since the birth of powered flight, but their maps have been a little overlooked.
We designed and developed its website, a custom Shopify implementation. The site acts as the primary digital home the project alongside the Discover site.
A Digital Interpretation
To accompany the newspaper, a map Discover site was developed. Not to compete against its analogue cousin but rather provide a distinctly online experience. Here you can explore a curated selection vintage maps.
