Custom Blue Flaps with Custom Font & Colors

American Airlines was born out of the union of more than eighty small airlines in 1930. Since then, it has become one of the largest airlines in the world with an average of 6,500 flights per day. Behind the monumental airline is an iconic brand that has been referenced in countless movies and TV shows, such as Up in the Air, Mad Men, and more.

With the brand’s most recent iteration in 2013, a custom font and proprietary Pantone color were created. Oat Foundry was tasked with creating a Split Flap that would match the font and color. Cue the origin story of the first all blue Split Flap in America.
