Le Jet aims high with new campaign

Le Jet Propulsion Systems & Haute Couture hires Cyrus Highsmith to develop the graphics and typography for the launch of their latest jet pack.

Le Jet manufactures premium jet packs and jet pack accessories. When you need to get to that art opening quickly, when you are running late for a photo shoot, when you simply want to make a dramatic entrance, Le Jet has the jet pack for you. High technology and high fashion meet in all of Le Jet’s products.

Cyrus Highsmith, of Occupant LLC, was hired in 2012 to work on Le Jet’s branding and the advertising campaign for their new premium jet pack, the L’Etoile 5000. Highsmith created a graphic campaign featuring silhouettes, drawn with his distinctive sharp line, modeling jet pack accessories and soaring through the sky. For the typography, he chose his typeface Serge.

Serge is an acrobatic design. The curves are fast and change direction on a dime in mid-air. “I think of Serge as a script”, said Highsmith, “although its letters don’t actually connect.” Serge is accompanied by the industrial-strength sans serif, Antenna.
