A panel of HAL team members selected Thomas’ design for its colorful palette, nostalgic aesthetic and modernized interpretation of the brand.

Fans were asked to create a poster commemorating Holland America Line’s 150th anniversary, paying homage to the company’s historic advertorial posters. Thomas’ prize is a seven-day Alaska cruise for two in a balcony stateroom.

‘Perfectly reflects both our past and the brand we are today’

‘Congratulations to Austin on creating a poster that stood out not only for its eye-catching design but also how it perfectly reflects both our past and the brand we are today,’ said Kacy Cole, VP marketing and e-commerce, Holland America Line. ‘We received so many amazing posters that honored our milestone birthday, and it’s clear that our fans know our history. Thank you to everyone who entered.’

In addition to being featured on HAL’s social media channels, the winning poster will be displayed in Rotterdam’s cruise terminal April 18 and 19 as the line celebrates its 150th birthday.
