Keith Weiland, while living in Atlanta, Georgia, designed new airport check-in equipment for Delta Airlines. The Summer Olympics were in Atlanta in 1996 and the equipment was ready to go in time for that. Keith Weiland worked for his son’s firm Grant Weiland Architects and Innovative Engineering in Atlanta for this project. Keith designed and engineered the equipment and created the logo and the typeface for Delta. The Greek letter Delta (the triangle) was in front of the airline’s name. Desks with computers, for indoors or outside use, had to be both air conditioned and heated to keep the computers at their proper temperature. New on all pieces was a shelf for the customers to lean or or set their small backpacks and purses on. Soon after the Olympics Delta went to the “kiosk model”, said Mr. Weiland. Now, in 2019, Delta logo is all in capital letters and the Greek letter Delta still precedes the name.
