Kickstarter of the Day: 1975 NASA Graphics Standards Manual

Kickstarter1Kickstarter7

Designers Jesse Reed and Hamish Smyth, the duo behind the highly successful New York City Transit Authority Graphics Standards Manual Kickstarter campaign, are at it again. This time around they have their hearts set on releasing a reissue of the 1975 NASA Graphics Standards Manual.

The Kickstarter aims to celebrate the now iconic work of Richard Danne and Bruce Blackburn (of Danne & Blackburn), the young design firm responsible for the redesign, which was part of President Richard Nixon’s general initiative to raise the standard of design and communications of US government agencies in the early 70s.

More images and promo video for this fantastic archival project below!
