I really wanted to design something galactic. In addition, something that would fit ideally on most social media platforms. Particularly square in proportion. When thinking of outer space, my mind wanders to the late 60's when the Soviet Union was in competition with the United States. This competition was known as the Space Race.
During this era both countries made considerable efforts to rally the people in support of reaching the final frontier. The government utilized postal stamps as a form of propaganda to reach the masses. Which also happened to be the perfect proportion for my creative intentions.
These were some of the initial steps taken which lead to the creation of my own space themed postage stamp. To take things further, I produced the stamp as a 3"x3" vinyl sticker and a 12"x12" poster.
