Brought back to Earth 40 years after it was designed, and more than two decades after it was lost, the NASA Graphics Standards Manual Reissue celebrates the 1970s book that redefined the space agency's visual identity for a generation. The design reference, created by Richard Danne and Bruce Blackburn, introduced the NASA "worm" logo that replaced the NASA "meatball" until 1992. The reissue, organized by designers Jesse Reed and Hamish Smyth, is being offered through a Kickstarter campaign launched on Tuesday (Sept. 1).
A 40-year-old book that gave rise to one of NASA's most iconic logos is being launched back into print using Kickstarter. The NASA Graphics Standards Manual, first published in 1976, defined a new identity for the space agency, as led by the NASA "worm."
