Expressjet - Stylish!

While driving down the 405 one evening, I saw a billboard that caught my interest:

Plus, it's super-easy to remember and prompted a visit:



The website ties in well to the billboard graphics and it's apparent that there is a good design team behind this effort--everything is well-executed and consistent. I found more signs/graphics that support this impression:



I just love the red-on-black look, accented by a sophisticated muted green color. It feels very fresh right now and I was really impressed with the whole package.
