Space the Final Frontier

My senior thesis project (and probably my favorite project I've ever worked on).

I decided to share my love of space and astronomy and designed a 'beginners guide to the universe'. The book is divided into three sections, the planets, constellations and deep space objects, and how best to view them for yourself. I also developed a comapnion version of the book for iPad which features animated infographics and sound. This project won the faculty choice award for Best Hybrid Project of the 2012 GAID graduating class.

I recently design a companion poster series that is now for sale on society6!

A big thank you to NASA for all the beautiful space images!
