"We came in peace for all mankind” reminds today’s earth inhabitants, fifty years later, of the unifying spirit transmitted worldwide through the mission of Apollo 11. The idea was to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the landing to to Moon and back to Earth between July 16th and 24th, 1969 of a crew of 3 human astronauts.
Various Informations about Apollo 11’s seven days travel are to discover within the poster. Datas such as the trans-lunar and trans-earth coast, the precise number of hours the mission took, and the exact time on the moon at the moment of the first step is all included. Additional elements – a countdown, the phases of the moon, two NASA photos of the earth and the moon – have been integrated into the photo construction. Finally, hidden in one of the many moon variations, a qr-code triggers a one-hour audio of the most important moments of the 195-hour mission, giving this poster a further interactive dimension.
Two completely different graphical approaches have been intertwined into a unique collaboration for this self-produced Swiss poster-size work. This collaborative experience between Jean-Benoit Levy and Martin Venezky aligns two visions which have turned their energies into a playful, poetical and original design. The project was awarded in various poster competitions.
