The world of advertising has drastically change throughout the years, and the old-school vintage advertising campaigns from yesteryears are considered passé by todays standard. The 1960s-inspired ad illustrations by Singapore-based ad agency BBH Asia Pacific, takes people back into the time where air travel was a lifestyle of luxury and extravagance.

Made for the British Airways’ new Heathrow Terminal 5, each poster showcases a facet of indulgence and lavishness that people will associate with the airport, which trickles down to the aesthetic needs people. The idea that people need to be reminded about the luxury an airplane ticket has to offer, seems to be an idea right out of the advertising mind of Donald Draper.

The vintage-styled posters illustrate the once unattainable life of air travel, which is now a common facet in today's world. Stats for Era-Inspired Print Campaigns Trending: Older & Average
