VistaJet, the private aviation company, is celebrating its 10th anniversary in 2014 with the publication of “VistaJet – The Illustrated Story”.
Illustrated by celebrated artist Jean-Philippe Delhomme, with text by copywriter Simona Rabinovitch, the story touches on the milestones and growth of VistaJet since inception. The book tells the VistaJet story and highlights anecdotes from employees and friends of the company.
VistaJet is the world’s fastest growing private aviation company. Founded in 2004 by Thomas Flohr , its fleet of Bombardier aircraft are based across Europe, the Middle East, Asia, and West Africa. Click here to see our related story about the Fabergé eggs on display aboard VistaJet flights.
Delhomme, a fashion illustrator, painter and cultural writer based in Paris, has gained recognition with collaborations and award-winning ad campaigns for Barneys New York, SAAB USA, The Mark Hotel NYC, Le Bon Marché in Paris, and Sotheby’s. As a fashion illustrator, and a chronicler of culture, he has written and illustrated several books such as The Cultivated Life and Design Addicts. He has also penned several novels as well as articles for French GQ, Architectural Digest France and Vogue Paris. Jean-Philippe contributes regularly to GQ France and GQ USA (most indelibly as the illustrator for Glenn O’Brien’s column, “The Style Guy”).
“I was browsing through my favorite bookshop on a rainy Sunday night in New York and I stumbled across Jean-Philippe Delhomme’s book,” says Nina Flohr, Brand Director, VistaJet. “I fell in love with his illustrative style and use of the gouache method. His work immediately transported me into a world that made me feel positive.”
“Jean-Philippe is representative of a romantic reality,” she adds. “I adore how he is visually so elegant yet funny and charming at the same time. I
am proud to have worked with Jean-Philippe and I think his work is a great fit to the VistaJet brand.”
Writer Simona Rabinovitch, who covers arts, pop culture, travel, music and entertainment for the Globe & Mail and Billboard.com says she has long admired Delhomme’s ability to capture moments, as well as characterize people and situations with his own distinctive style. “That made him a perfect match for collaboration on ‘VistaJet – The Illustrated Story’,” she adds. “He has a strong affiliation with art and each illustration includes small subtleties and hints that bring the story to life. His style, simple yet with attention to detail, echos that of the VistaJet brand.”
