Retro Spacesuit History

January 27th, 2012



Spacesuits are intriguing. These spacesuits were photographed by Mark Avino for the book Spacesuits: The Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum Collection.

Spacesuits are surprisingly fragile; they are made for a short lifespan in the most extreme of conditions, and long-term survival is not part of their design process. The final chapter touches briefly on the current conditions of historic suits, how they have held up over time, the reasons for their deterioration, and the rewards and difficulties associated with caring for and preserving these very complex and iconic artifacts. From the first spacesuit designs of the 1930s through those worn on the landmark Apollo-Soyuz program of 1975,Spacesuits provides a behind-the-scenes look at the history of these remarkable creations, including some that have never before been publicly displayed.

Mikes love for punk rock music and Swiss design is what allows these two near polar opposites to meet. Each poster reflects the traditional international typographic style posters, each sized to the standard swiss kiosk dimensions of 35.5″ by 50″. The typeface used of course is Berthold Akzidenz Grotesk Medium.

Canon EOS 500D Hand Bag

December 14th, 2011



Quite a cool collateral concept to go along with a Canon EOS 500D brochure. As grocery stores across the world require you to bring in your own grocery bags, these would be great for photographers. I’d use one.
