This is the official "crew version" of the ISS Expedition 14 mission logo. Elements from this design will likely appear in the mission patch.

I really like this patch, it's moved away from the usual type of design. Any idea who designed it?

Time will tell how accurate my information is but a few months ago I heard that Mike Lopez-Allegria would be the US Astronaut and CDR of Expedition 14.

I contacted him with an offer to help him design the crew patch and he responded thankng me for the offer but that he was working with an artist "in house".

So my guess is that someone at JSC is the artist. We'll see.

Yes, LA is CDR for Expedition 14. There will be four crewmember overall, two of which will share part time on Expedition 14 *if* the shuttle schedule sticks as is.

CDR: Michael E. Lopez-Alegria
FE1: Mikhail V. Tyurin

STS-121 up: Thomas Reiter (down 116)
STS-116 up: Sunita L. Williams

No names or will they be added later?

Who designed this patch, and is more info about it available?

I like it! It's simple yet bold and imaginative. As for your question Jacques, I don't think they plan on putting names. The "XIV" and "swoosh" towards Mars are both close to the border.

Maybe they are concerned about having to re-do it if the crew plans change.

Mike LA told me there won't be any names, and that he wanted to go for an "Apollo 11" look.

Of course, it possibly had to do with people not wanting to put the name "Reiter" on, and then have to take it off again.

From NASA's website:

ISS014-S-001 (May 2006) --- This emblem embodies the past, present, and future of human space exploration. The Roman numeral XIV suspended above the Earth against the black background of space symbolizes the fourteenth expeditionary mission to the International Space Station (ISS), or Международная Космическая Станция. Elements of this symbol merge into a unified trajectory destined for the moon, Mars, and beyond, much as science and operations aboard the ISS today will pave the way for future missions to our celestial neighbors. The five stars honor the astronauts and cosmonauts of missions Apollo 1, Soyuz 1, Soyuz 11, Challenger, and Columbia, who gave their lives in the pursuit of knowledge and discovery. The NASA insignia for design for shuttle flights and station increments is reserved for use by the astronauts and for other official use as the NASA Administrator may authorize. Public availability has been approved only in the form of illustrations by the various news media. When and if there is any change in this policy which is not anticipated, it will be publicly announced.
