Kingston University MA Communication Design Project - 2009
In 1990, with the suggestion of late Carl Sagan, NASA took a picture of our world from 6.4 billion kilometers away. Inspired by this extremely zoomed out view of our world, Sagan wrote one of the most inspiring books I've ever read - "The Pale Blue Dot". I decided to pay a tribute to this visionary man by visualizing a famous passage from his book.
The logo of the book as well as the book itself (named "The Pale Blue Dot - The Only Home We've Ever Known) is in circular shape. I used numerous typographic treatments to illustrate the words of the excerpt. The book consists of 41 pages which open by sliding, and an audio CD of the original speech by Carl Sagan himself. To stress the idea of roundness even more, I used Vag Rounded as the main font.
Viewing the video in HD is highly recommended.
