The "Dot Com" boom of the early 2000s exploded the options for travel for the everyday person, bringing the travel agency virtually into our homes. One company at the forefront was Orbitz, and this poster is part of their very first campaign from 2001. In order to differentiate themselves from the competition, Orbitz decided to pay homage to the heyday of travel agencies - the 1950s. They employed two of the era’s illustrators, Robert Swanson and David Klein - then in their ‘80s - to create five great images that harkened back to the Mad Men era of advertising. Pictured here is a reference to a poster created by Stan Galli for United Airlines to California in the 1950s. The original image by Stan Galli is one of the most admired travel poster of the era.

Orbitz chose to work with the design firm TBWA/Chiat/Day on this inaugural campaign for wise reasons - this was the same graphic design firm that helped launch the first Macintosh computer, as well as Apple’s iconic Think Different campaign of the late 1990s. Chiat saw the connection between Orbitz and the nostalgia of the travel agency.

  • If there's anything you want to know about posters, vintage or more modern, there's nothing Mr Ross doesn't know. His open and friendly manner helps one to choose the most suitable material whether for decoration, investment or whatever... I can't recommend him highly enough.

  • Just wanted to say thanks for the poster. You sent it on Thursday and it was delivered the following Monday (nearly quicker than it took us to get home) to our house in Perth, Australia. We have just had it framed. We love it; it goes perfectly with the room.

  • The Ross Gallery has the best selection of vintage posters I have ever seen. Seriously, if you are in the market, they are the people. And, they know everything there is to know about the posters' provenance.
