International Year of Astronomy 2009 posters

Simon Page is a self-taught graphic designer from the UK with a passion for typography, illustration and geometric designs.

As a means of promoting himself, Page created this gorgeous poster series around the International Year of Astronomy – which was this year.

I love the retro feel of the designs. As Page points out himself, I could easily see these in on an old astronomy book back in the 60s and 70s.

And hear this: The International Year of Astronomy organisation picked up on this, and are now going to use these posters in their promotional work! What a great and well-deserved compliment.
