While not as flashy and glamourous as walking on the moon, the role that graphics and design played in keeping NASA's space program alive in the hearts and minds of the American people in the post-Apollo era shouldn't be understated. Like the rockets on the shuttle, the NASA Graphics Standards Manual was meant to accelerate the agency's ad image campaign, implemented by designers Richard Danne and Bruce Blackburn. Touching on everything from vehicle decals, to work uniforms, and shuttle graphics, the NASA Graphics Standards guided how the agency presented itself until this version's eventual demise in 1992. However, this Kickstarter project seeks to revive this piece of history, taking the original documents and collating them into hardback format for fans of all ages and perspectives to enjoy. Available for $79, you can own this piece of design and space history now after a visit to the team's Kickstarter site.
