New Book: The Worm 📕

Today at 4:33pm, weather permitting, SpaceX will launch two NASA astronauts to the International Space Station aboard a Crew Dragon spacecraft atop a Falcon 9 rocket.

Painted on the side of that rocket in NASA Red (PMS 179) will be the iconic NASA insignia—nicknamed “the worm”—designed by Danne & Blackburn in 1975, and rescinded by NASA in 1992.

Today, the worm is back—and our latest title, The Worm, is now available.

Shipping October 2020.

We're very excited to announce that the 1977 EPA Graphic Standards System is live on Kickstarter.

Why are we doing this? Because we hope to show how much the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency means to the design community, and to show how we can design for good—and make the world a better place.

Designed by firm Chermayeff & Geismar and partner Steff Geissbühler, today reissued as a hardcover book printed in 14 Pantone® colors.

Our partners are designers + publishers Hamish Smyth + Jesse Reed of Standards Manual and design firm Chermayeff & Geismar & Haviv.

I've been waiting for the arrival of my copy of the EPA graphic standards system book. WOW! absolutely wow, beautiful and filled with gorgeous images, color and quality. Nice choice of paper and cover material, very clean and well worth the wait and cost. Great work guys, keep it up.
Hey, this might be insane, but have you guys ever thought about reproducing the "Dune Film Book", as seen in "Jodorowsky's Dune"?
