SPACEcorp was created in 2014-15 as a fictional corporation. Inspired by the space age ideals of the 50’s and 60’s, when Aerospace and Advertising collaborated on campaigns to promote the promise of science, it originally consisted of an R&D arm and a creative counterpart comprised of Illustration students promoting the projects of the collaborating student teams. Today, SPACEcorp has evolved into an educational Research & Development framework designed to inspire, support and implement the project ideas of the participating students.
The logo was created by Meinert Hansen. It incorporates the Eurostile typeface. The atomic symbol was a familiar pictogram of the 1960s, and the “industrial science orange” evokes the look of multiple science industry logos of that time.
