N & P are both equally impressive.

Looks like a 2 horse race. As per CRASH's comments earlier, I prefer "P" but would be happy with either.

When will you be announcing the finished design Robert?

I think P has brought inspiration to an already classic design theme. Definitely P.

Like most everyone, I'll proudly wear whichever is chosen. But I much prefer "P". Yes, Robert, cS was born during the shuttle program and on the Apollo 11 anniversary, but what you have created has grown to international proportions. It must certainly have exceeded what you dreamed it would and that should be acknowledged. I believe it's better to be inclusive.

That being said, I can appreciate the comments that "P" doesn't flow as well, or is too busy. May I offer a solution?

Reduce the size of the ISS and re-orientate the arrays so that it more closely fits the orbital flow. I know you mentioned that you would want the ISS to be more defined than "O" but I contend that even a simple illustration that depicts the arrays will be recognized as the ISS. It too has an iconic shape.

In support of this suggestion, I offer as an example the Expedition 23 patch. Look at how small it is and how very small the ISS was depicted. No one ever confused it as something else. Oh and make the arrays gold.

P for me ... but can we start with "voting buttons" so we have an idea which design is "winning"?

Tallying up the votes since the final "N" and "P" options were presented, I believe we have a clear winner.

There were 7 votes for "P" and 18 votes for "N", making "N" the clear favorite.

I want to thank everyone who submitted designs, including Dennis Gillam, Tim Gagnon, Bob Sorenson, Chris Lee, Jorge Cartes, David Carey, Declan Gilligan and the designer of "N" — the new patch for collectSPACE — Dave Ginsberg!

AB Emblem will be producing the patches. The initial sizes offered will be 3-inch and 4-inch diameter.

Winco will be producing a lapel pin. Other products, e.g. decals, polo shirts, etc., may follow, with availability to be announced.

Pre-orders for patches and pins will begin later this month with delivery in August.

And we'll announce the new patch to our readers-at-large and the public next Saturday, July 20, on the 14th anniversary of collectSPACE!

Oh, I forgot to mention...

For all those submitted designs, you will be receiving a free patch set (3" and 4" editions), and for all those who contributed to this thread, either by voting or sharing your opinion of any of the designs, if you order a patch (of either size), you'll receive a 3" patch for free.

For Chris (Tykeanaut) who began this topic and idea, you'll be receiving a free pin, too (in addition to your free patch set for submitting a design).

And lastly, for Dave (Rocketman!) who designed the winning emblem, you'll be receiving free patches and pins, as well at least one of everything else we make, and a surprise space artifact!

Thank you everyone!

This is an excellent choice - really any of the final M-P designs seemed appropriate though the 'cleaner' aspects of N certainly appeal to me. Like it a lot and well done Dave!

(and thank you Robert; that's a very nice and unexpected bonus for taking a crack at Chris' idea)

Robert, thank you very much. It really is much appreciated "I'm over the moon"! (Or would like to be).

Glad the suggestion turned out so popular and interesting to all with a terrific outcome.

Thank you very much, Robert ... and to all the rest of the cS community!

Again, it has been gratifying to see the positive responses to my designs. I am very proud to have created the artwork that has ultimately been chosen to represent collectSPACE and its members.

As is evidenced by the quality of the artists' contributions and the lively discussion, there is much artistic creativity and passion among this group. I have appreciated all the comments and constructive suggestions from cS members. I think that it can be said that, together, we all had some influence to the final design.

The patch design was a fun one for me to do. It was one of those times when inspiration struck, and I had to get it out of my head and onto the screen. Once I started, the right references were there, and it all fell together. The fact that so many people liked it is icing on the cake.

Robert, you are quite generous with the free tchotchkes. Are you sure you're not eating away too much of your market? And, as for the "surprise space artifact", you can send my Moon rock and/or 1:4 scale 1965 Lunar Module prototype model to my private Space Geek lair in the U.S. Pacific Northwest. I may consider letting the Museum of Flight display it for me.

In all seriousness, thank you for the chance to contribute to collectSPACE, and for opening up the patch creation activity to us all. I look forward to proudly displaying my cS badge of honor wherever I go ... and being able to spot and meet fellow cS members in all the space places they may be found.

We have a new about the insignia page, too.
Like the mission patches worn by astronauts, cosmonauts and other space explorers, the official collectSPACE logo represents our "mission" to document space history and follow the exchange of the information and artifacts that have come as humankind has pushed further out into the solar system.

The iconic silhouettes of the Apollo spacecraft and space shuttle orbiter symbolize the history of spaceflight, as well as the history of collectSPACE: this website first debuted on the anniversary of the first moon landing and emerged as a leading news source during the latter missions of the space shuttle program.

The orbital trajectories represent the progression of history as well as the interactions between collectSPACE's world-wide readership, as they have traded their knowledge and memorabilia from the missions they have followed, helped make possible or, as in some cases, have even flown.

The distant spacecraft stands for the future of spaceflight, and the on-going discoveries made while researching the history of space exploration.

The insignia was designed by space artist Dave Ginsberg, with input from the collectSPACE community.

I agree, the new insignia does look good. It is immediately noticeable when you open the page. Gives it a whole fresh look.

Immediateley catches the eye. Well designed and good looking patch. And although this wonderful website doesn't really need it, added kudos.

Robert, Thanks for your generous bonus gift upon ordering the new collectSPACE patch to those of us who participated in this subject. Looking forward to receiving the ordering information when you're ready with it. Congrats Dave on your design and also to all other participating talented, imaginative, inspirational artists. The design looks great on the site.

Great that cS now has its own emblem! Looking forward to ordering a patch. Now the only thing left is to actually send an example into space, either in an unmanned or manned spacecraft. Maybe one of our members has a contact in the Astronaut Office at JSC or with ESA? That would be a memorable event, not in the history of space flight but in the story of this forum for which Robert has labored long and hard to establish as the best site for space news and collectibles.

What a great idea, the collectSPACE patch in space - cool!

I've just realised another reason I like the patch so much, there is a slight nod to the Apollo 8 emblem which was my introduction to spaceflight as an 8-year-old.

I have some connections at JSC and I know of other members with connections across the pond. But I have to believe knowing Robert as I do, that he's already working on this.

The thought of having the patch flown into space certainly crossed my mind...

...but first things, first. The order for the patches and pins was submitted this morning. Let's get those in hand first — and into your hands — and then we can tackle sending one off the planet.

I have been lurking in the background and have not commented as I don't have an artistic eye, but now that the selection has been made I must say that I was very impressed with all the talent of the cS members. Congratulations to Dave on your winning design. I will definitely want to order these when they become available.

Count me in for a set of patches and a pin. A shirt would be awesome.

I really appreciate and enjoyed seeing the development process. I'm constantly in awe of the talent and generosity of my fellow members.

I really hope these are ready by the end of the summer so I can proudly wear one to JerseyFest and hopefully meet up with some of our modellers I've been following for years.

Congratulations Mr. Ginsberg on a fantastic design. Am I to late to order the patches and the pin. Will there be a cap in the future? How can I process my order and will there be a collectSPACE Shop later on?

Indeed, we have not yet begun taking orders for the patches or pins from readers and members.

I expect to finalize the details with AB Emblem and Winco on Monday.

An announcement will be posted to this thread when individual orders begin.
