Promotional poster for the International Space University 08 (Space Studies Program). It is an annual itinerant event that includes activities, courses and workshops about the space. It is celebrated in Barcelona, from July to August, 2008.
We designed icons inspired on the astronaut's typical suit patches, used for each space mission. The patches were produced physically, then we sewed them in a piece of fabric simulating the blue suit with pockets of an ESA 's astronaut.
ISU-SSP 2008 is organized by BAIE with the support of the Town Council of Barcelona, the Generalitat, La Caixa Obra Social and the Polytechnic University of Barcelona.
