ITINERARY CLOSE UP

Terraforming Mars

Symposium

Terraforming Mars is a symposium being hosted by The Franklin Institute. Drawing on scientists, space junkies, and curious minds alike, the seminar is striving to discuss the challenges and trials that would have to be successfully overcome by the human race to create a suitable living ecosystem and functioning society on Mars if and when Earth becomes unsuitable for human life. This invitation package and related collateral explore the transformation by distilling the concept of terraforming down to its basic idea: essentially Mars would have to transform from red to green.

Terraforming isn’t science fiction, it’s the future and this is where the future becomes reality.

MAIN INVITATION

While some people associate terraforming mars with science-fiction, Terraforming Mars revolves around reality and true science which is evidenced by the branding being refined and distinguished. Clean serif and sans-serif fonts balance modernity and tradition, emphasizing the more mature and sophisticated nature of the symposium and its attendees.

WAYFINDING

Throughout the branding, the abstract visuals of a transforming planet are the main focus of the invitation suite and branding. The flat contrasting colors, overlapping sections, and geometric shapes reflect back to the Swiss Style of design which came to prominence in the 40s which is when the term “terraforming” originated.
