"Practice Safe Design: Use a Concept."

The Cosmos

Did you know our solar system orbits around a super-massive black hole?


The Cosmos collection interprets ten related astronomy concepts visually. The Cosmos’ three visualizations each have a unique constriction. The first interpretation is a strictly typographic conceptualization. The second interpretation is a strictly image conceptualization. The final interpretation is a combination of typography and image.


Combining the intricacies behind the concepts of the Universe, Galaxy, Singularity, Quasar, Nova, Nebula, Nucleosynthesis, Photon, Quark, and Neutrino requires abstract communication of their relationships. The primary connecting attributes are their scale, time, and mass relationships.


The first interpretation demonstrates excellent communication skills using graphic design. The second interpretation takes advantage of various Adobe and Nikon software and hardware to create a visually stunning photo series. The final interpretation utilizes 3D modeling in Cinema 4D and front-end web languages to create an interactive infographic.

The Cosmos collection’s “Growth” poster is an explanation of the relationships between the divergent astronomy themes in the Cosmos collection. The relationships are demonstrated using the typographic and graphic design principals of scale, hierarchy, and visual communicative tools like whitespace.

The Cosmos collection conceptual themes are linked by their time in the life of the universe. Each concept plays and important role in the creation and continuation of the Universe. The Cosmos collection’s “Conception” photo series artistically illustrates the narrative of the universe.

Using Cinema 4d and front-end web development languages, the Cosmos collection’s interactive infographic illuminates the relationships between the collection’s astronomy concepts by visually evaluating the mass comparisons in the universe.
