Orbit – Case Study

We set about designing a collection of illustrated postcards that gives a brief history of some of the most notable man-made satellites that have been sent into orbit. By meticulously researching and illustrating the satellites we hoped to produce a project that did justice to the leaps in technological innovation that we find so inspiring.

 

Orbit Infographic Postcards

Challenge: We love space. So, we set ourselves a brief to run alongside our other projects that gave us a chance to turn our passion for the interstellar exploration into something beautifully crafted. By meticulously researching and illustrating the designs we hoped to produce a project that did justice to the leaps in technological innovation that we find so inspiring.

Solution: We set about designing a collection of postcards that gives a brief history of some of the most notable man-made satellites that have been sent into orbit.

Each card works as a standalone infographic, featuring a technical illustration of the satellite on the front and information about its launch and mission on the back. When put together as a set of six, the cards form a larger infographic that charts each satellite’s intersecting orbit around Earth.

The series begins with The USSR’s 1957 ‘Sputnik’, which was the first artificial object to be sent into orbit. The set charts the most significant satellites launched over the second half of the 20th century, ending with the Hubble Space Telescope.
