A non-profit space education program aimed to spark interest in young minds
Circular, Operator Mono
Influences were drawn from the atomic era of space exploration; which influenced the aesthetic and identity of the program design.
To re-invigorate the excitement of space programs – a modern approach to the atomic identity was developed to reflect the past while also celebrating the new. The clean graphics reduce the association with government space program branding.
The playful characteristics of Circular was an obvious choice to convey energy and attention for a complicated scientific field. Circular’s alternate glyphs provide extra flexibility when working with display and body text.
Operator is primarily used as a subheading and body font, attempting to imitate an ‘operator’ personality behind the machine communicating notes and instructions. The typewriter and monospaced aesthetic has become synonymous with authenticity in old computers, journalism and academia – the tone I hope to inherit.
