hi. i need to design a vintage style travel poster for a major wine brand based in argentina.. any suggestions on what to use? im thinking the whole steamer trunk,vintage luggage tag, romantic travel 1930's time period.. i want to use two faces that really compliment each other for the headline (something like "experience BRAND NAME HERE")...

thoughts? ideas?

How appropriate - I'm designing a book on Vintage Ocean Liners and it has lots of samples of luggage tags, stickers and posters. One font I think works very nicely is the Neutraface and Neutraface Condensed family from House Industries. I'm using them in combination with Stuyvesant Open script and Corvinus Skyline.

If you would like to look at a few typefaces that were actually inspired by vintage travel posters, may I suggest a few little numbers from my catalog: Bessie Mae Moocho, East Coast Frolics, Gotham Rail Company, Maloja Palace, Marrakesh Express, Mesa Verde, Pomegranate, Red Star Line and Zuider Zee.

Eunoia is something I did recently. It's not based on anything in particular, but has a kind of geometric style that could be Art Deco, or Op Art, or even contemporary.

Could be mixed with something more historical, say from Blumlein 3

I'm not sure wether you think my typefaces are too "modern" for this project? Please have a look and decide yourself;
