Grab a Free NASA Travel Poster to Anywhere in the Universe
JPL might have just saved your ass this Valentine's Day.
Alright everyone, it’s the Friday before Valentine’s Day. Some of you are well prepared, and others just read that first sentence and cursed under their breath. Well, fear not! NASA‘s Jet Propulsion Laboratory has got all future gifts covered with their new series of vintage-inspired “travel” posters that they’ve just made available to the public as free downloads. Choose from fourteen different worlds in our solar system—including Mars, Ceres, Europa, Jupiter, and (fan-favorite) Earth—and grab a beautifully designed, high-resolution file ready for printing (and framing).
These gorgeous and playful works of art, which are part of JPL’s Exoplanet Travel Bureau series, were crafted and created by The Studio at JPL—”a design and strategy team that works with JPL scientists and engineers to visualize and depict complex science and technology topics.” Two of the designers who worked on the posters, Don and Ryan Clark of Invisible Creature, were thrilled to lend their illustrative talents to NASA:
[Our] goal with these was that people would want to hang them up and that they were beautiful and that they lived up to the standard that is NASA,” Clark said. “We were inspired by vintage travel posters, WPA-type posters from the 1930s and then all the way up to mid-century modern— 1940s, 1950s, 1960s. We want that vintage look but we want it to feel contemporary as well. The project was a no brainer and was really a special one for us.
You can download each poster in PDF or TIFF format here. And don’t say that NASA never gets you anything!
