Stuart Sandler’s Air Flow and Starliner

With the addition this week of Breaking the Norm, a new label under the Sideshow foundry name, we came across all kinds of new novelty display faces. Taking a closer look at a couple of related ones now, here’s Air Flow and Starliner.

Air Flow calls from memory the sense of wonder surrounding space travel, integrated circuits, and a future of technological advancement. Its rectilinear forms and a top-heavy structure distance the style from the here and now, to some far-off advanced culture.

Starliner follows the lines of the popular chrome script lettering styles seen on cars, refrigerators, radios, and other specially marked items from the fifties and sixties.
