Being a bit of an astronomy nerd, I find it important that everyone has some knowledge of our little corner of the universe.
In an effort to help tell the story of our solar system I’ve designed this series of informational posters. Each print lists the planet’s major characteristics along with descriptive text and gorgeous imagery. Those with a keen eye for detail will notice the backdrop of space darkens subtly as we move farther away from the sun.

Designed specifically for high-quality, giclee printing on archival paper. My approach: appreciate and educate.
Each poster in the collection contains 12 facts and a brief description of the planet, the planetary symbol and a scaled-down legend of orbital distance from the sun.
Typefaces were selected for their universal appeal and application; Gill Sans for titles and main headings; Franklin Gothic for its legibility at small sizes.
