The In-Space Manufacturing (ISM) project focuses on developing on-demand manufacturing capabilities for the NASA Exploration Missions. ISM developed a 3D printing Fabrication Laboratory (Fab Lab) which can manufacture parts in space using multiple materials.
Last year, the ISM project made history by sending the first 3D printer to the International Space Station. They considered it “a critical first step in demonstrating additive manufacturing in microgravity”.
Now, NASA needs your help in designing a logo for ISM! As stated in the contest brief, the design should reflect the key themes of space exploration and on-demand manufacturing/repair. The winning logo will be used in all presentation materials, on team items (shirts, mugs, etc.), and in materials for education and public outreach.
This is your chance to work with NASA! Check out the contest requirements and judging criteria, get your ideas together, and start working on your design.
• Both a color version and black/white version are required.
• Source File Requirements: All original vector source files of the submitted design. Files should be created in Adobe Illustrator or Inkscape and saved as layered AI or EPS files. Note that PSDs saved as EPS files are not true vector / scalable files and will not be accepted.
• All fonts (and operating systems) must be listed in a text file within your Submission Zip file. Include the name of the font and a link to where it can be downloaded/purchased. DO NOT include any font files in your submission or source files.
• All text in the logo should be converted to outlines.
• Submission should also include 1024 x1024 version of the logo in jpeg or png (on both a black background and a white background). The NASA insignia or other NASA logos cannot be used as any part of the submission.
• Color palette is open, but limited to 6 colors.
• Please avoid gradients or other special effects as they are difficult to reproduce across all media.
Stock Photography Requirements:
• Stock photography is not allowed in this contest. All submitted elements must be designed solely by you.
• Requirements: Does your logo meet the requirements as stated within the challenge?
• Quality: Does your logo look fresh, professional, and clean?
• Concept: Does your logo capture the ISM Project?
