EXOPLANET POSTERS & THE VISIONS OF THE FUTURE SERIES

As a member of The Studio at JPL I was asked to create concepts that would celebrate the diversity of exoplanets that were being discovered. Creating mock advertisements to visit Mars was something I used to do a lot with students while leading the Imagine Mars Project. Creating travel posters to these far off worlds seemed like a perfect way to communicate the strange characteristics that these planets had and the project took shape from there.

In the process we all fell in love with the idea that we could represent the dream of someday traveling throughout the solar system. The planets and moons that are being discovered are far away and hard get to, but they are actually there, waiting for us. This drove our imaginations crazy with thoughts of what it would be like to be there and what we would do for fun. 

Below are the first concept images that led to the development of the first three posters. Since the development of the first three we have created 13 other posters for this series.
