A sneak peek into what happens behind the curtain
Space Race Propaganda
During my research of its history, I discovered that Futura was used by NASA on the lunar plaque left by Buzz Aldrin and Neil Armstrong, making it the first typeface to make it to the moon. This inspired me to look to propaganda posters from the space race between the U.S. and the U.S.S.R. I took inspiration for color and composition.
