Air NZ revamp embraces the dark side
By Design Daily Team
Air New Zealand is going black for good, with its fleet set to sport a new livery from next year that was created in collaboration with leading Kiwi typeface designer Kris Sowersby and Designworks. Air New Zealand chief executive Rob Fyfe announced last week that the tails of all new aircraft entering the fleet will be painted black.
“The Air New Zealand lettering has remained relatively unchanged for the past 20 years, but the airline has undergone significant cultural and reputational change. The challenge was to develop a new style which retained the history and credibility while injecting a new sense of momentum and modernity.”
