As the Atlantis shuttle flight STS-135 disembarks from the International Space Station for the very last time, we thought we’d pull together a few space-themed images that we’ve created over the last few years.
Above is a cover for Wired Magazine from back in June 2007 – a composite of numerous space rockets with a lovely deep colour grade. How pertinent, too, that the magazine featured an article on “The Sad Decline of NASA”…just as we witness the last of its explorations. As well as all the exploratory and scientific discovery made over the decades, perhaps the most shareable joy NASA have given the world has been an absolutely extraordinary, beautiful array of imagery that has amazed and inspired. We’ll miss that.
Below is a satellite we created for SAP Software, through Ogilvy, NY, a couple of years back.
This was a CGI creation composited with various stock photography (sadly, we didn’t manage to wrangle a shoot on location for that one).
And an original SB animation from last year: TimeSpace. A demo piece we created entirely in CGI using CAD data from a real watch, this spot showcased the ease with which we could bring inanimate data to life very efficiently and with very nice results.
So to Yuri Gagarin, the first man in space, whose statue was unveiled in London a few days ago, and to the NASA shuttle program: so long, and thanks for all the pictures…
