Pan Am Playing Cards (project) were designed by the American artist Lisa Lam. Playing cards are dedicated to Pan American World Airways (commonly known as Pan Am). It was the largest international air carrier in the United States from 1927 until its collapse on December 4, 1991 (was sold to Delta Air Lines).
“When the assignment was handed down to create a design-driven deck of cards, I didn’t have to think twice about choosing Pan Am as my theme. Pan Am is a pop icon on the rise. It isn’t popular enough where a current high school student can identify the brand, but the potential to use it as a hip and visually appealing subject was all there.” ~ Lisa Lam © 2013 Lisa Lam
