  1. These are excellent designs. The Galileo poster first reminded me of the intro credits for Star Trek: The Next Generation, where the cast’s faces are composited onto footage of planets. Very cool reference (if it was intentional). I also appreciate how the same poster gives you the sense of the planets being brought close with the juxtaposition of an earth-bound object (tree) and the planet. It’s kind of a foretaste of what happens when you look through a telescope.

    The second poster is just perfect for the subject matter. It’s got this sort of Alice in Wonderland-Harry Potter vibe going on that’s kinda trippy! It imparts a sense of childlike wonder and a desire to explore. I’m sure the clients were thrilled!

  2. Something feels wrong about the face in that first poster, but it still works pretty well, and the rest of it is phenominal.

    I think its just the placement/inclusion of thee face. Personal choice im sure

  3. These are wonderful. I work at the Space Telescope Science Institute in Baltimore, Maryland, the fountainhead of the Hubble Space Telescope, and it is great to see such great work in the astronomy community. These designs maintain a sort of “down to earth” feel without being cliche, which can happen a lot with astronomical designs. Great work! How can we go about getting one of these for the office?!

  4. So I was sitting in the physics student lounge today when I noticed the pile of these posters on the table, and thought wow, for once the physics department is involved in something that has good taste in design… and then I saw the SignalNoise logo in the corner and it all made sense.

    Good job, but there’s something wrong in the face. I feel like it should be curved on the sphere.
