Graphic Designer Tyler Thompson decided that Delta's boarding passes "make you want to scratch your eyes out" and its so true (along with every other airline). Not only are boarding passes just plain ugly, they are also ridiculous to try and read and find information in a hurry. Every time, I have to sit there and study these suckers for a few long seconds to see "shoot, what gate am I at?" or "I need to fill out these immigration forms like whoa and they want my what, flight number?" That requires some research. The color options probably wouldn't be doable on the airport's 70's style printers but these two above I love. They have the flight, gate, seat and zone right there for ya. I think he should totally take these to the airlines.
And thats what graphic designers are meant to do - change lifestyles and lives for the better. Why didn't I think of this?
