Unique to Tradewind’s scheduled service is that most, if not all, of their flights are about an hour en route. As most occur over water and often in international waters, cellular service is not always available. Tradewind travelers find themselves with not quite enough time to do much of anything between takeoff and arrival. Keeping them entertained with an in-flight magazine, funded by advertising, was the end goal.
Developing an engaging and readable magazine was due to the hard work of editor Meg Nolan. Ann worked with Meg and Tradewind from the start, helping brainstorm and giving feedback to section ideas and names, as well as designing the overall look and feel, from paper and print processes such as the soft touch cover, to fonts, styling and layout. As of 2020, we’ve worked together to produce 12 beautiful quarterly issues.
