What’s the flying theme about, anyway?

logo-postage-stampAirplanes: elegant and ingenious, they defy logic and, with the right pilot, can give you a great ride. Much like good design.

Since a website is more engaging with a motif, my love of airplanes was carried throughout the site. When I introduced the flying theme in my first website, the logo featured a vintage airplane in the style of a classic airmail stamp. It featured a French Nieuport 17, which I also did an illustration of (below) when Studio Perspectives began flying the Seattle route in 1993.

With a more contemporary design in the 2016 upgrade, I said goodbye to the postage stamp and replaced it with a simple silhouette of a 1920’s-era biplane.
