No, that’s not a typo – this post is about the ISEC 2009 Space Elevator Poster. One of our goals at ISEC is for us to issue a commemorative poster each year. For various and sundry reasons, the poster for 2009 never got created, until now. The fact that we now have one is almost solely due to our new Artist-In-Residence, Frank Chase.
I’ve posted about Frank before (here and here) and carried through on my
threat promise to see if he would be ‘interested in designing a poster’ for ISEC. Frank has done more than that, agreeing to become ISEC’s Artist-In-Residence. This poster is his first completed project and he is now throwing ideas at us for the 2010 poster (which will have as its subject the 2010 ISEC Theme – Space Debris Mitigation). We’re actually to going to have that poster created THIS YEAR. Frank will also be designing the cover for our new ISEC Journal as well as doing some other projects we have lined up.
Visuals convey so much more than what mere words do and I think that Frank’s efforts will be a potent weapon in ISEC’s arsenal.
Frank does truly fine work (as you can see from this poster and from his websites I linked to in my earlier posts) and we are absolutely thrilled that he has agreed to become part of the ISEC team. Welcome Frank!
You can learn more about Frank by visiting the Team page on the ISEC Website.
Oh, and how do you get one of these posters (which is 11 x 17 inches and is offset print on high-quality, glossy stock)? Well, if you became a member in 2009, you are going to have one shipped to you, free, as part of your membership benefits (along with my personal apologies for being so tardy with this). Current members of ISEC can also purchase previous year’s posters (while supplies last) for a discounted price of $15.00 (plus shipping) or, if you’re not a member of ISEC, you can purchase one for $25.00 (plus shipping).
Those of you who have already joined or renewed in 2010 will get the 2010 poster for free.
