Two days ago, I posted about Tyler Thompson’s redesigned boarding pass that he made for Delta (and JetBlue) and mentioned that it was literally too beautiful and graphical for widespread use. I loved the way it looked, but I knew that it wasn’t simply going to happen by feeding a new design into computer systems.

Timoni Grone agrees that while Tyler’s design was sound, it wouldn’t pass in day-to-day use. Instead, Timoni designed a separate boarding pass with a few constraints in mind like using the standard Monaco typeface and getting rid of any fancy graphics. His final design ends up being a less radical transition while still serving the needs of the travelerl, TSA agents, and airline officials. Check out his post on the redesign to read about why he chose to do certain things this way.
