World View release
Luxury Space Travel Company Hosts Contest to Design Official Passenger Emblem

World View Challenges Designers to Leave Their Mark on Spaceflight

For those who dream of space travel, now is the time to leave a mark on this burgeoning industry. World View, a transformative space travel experience, invites designers and fans to create the official emblem to represent its spaceflight passengers known as 'Voyagers.'

Designers can develop and submit a design that will represent World View's Voyagers and live on for decades to come. Designs must be uploaded here by June 23. World View encourages creativity but designs should align with and speak to the brand. The grand prize winner will be awarded $500 cash and an all expenses paid trip* for themselves and a guest to the inaugural Voyager Gala, where they'll have the chance to witness the unveiling of part of the World View space capsule and rub elbows with NASA astronauts, celebrities and leaders from industries all over the world.

Launching its first flights in 2016, World View will have Voyagers floating gracefully to the edge of space, providing a rare opportunity to gaze at Earth below and see the world in a way that only astronauts have. They will board a stylish, fully pressurized space capsule for a gentle ascent to 20 miles above Earth under a high-altitude balloon. Once reaching peak altitude atop 99 percent of the atmosphere, passengers will spend two hours marveling at the Earth in all its glory – suspended against the backdrop of a vast, black and infinite universe. Thanks to in-flight Internet access, Voyagers can share the experience in real-time with loved ones while sipping on a cocktail.

Designers can enter the competition and view additional information here.

Competition Guidelines

  • Designs can, but do not have to, include World View visual branding elements.

  • Designs should include text, such as "World View," "Voyager," and/or any quotes or phrases that describe the experience a Voyager will receive on board a flight.

  • A high-level of creative freedom is encouraged.

  • Flexibility is a key requirement, including the need to resize easily. The final version of the design will need to be suitable for high-quality printing and embroidery. World View advises against the use of halftones and gradients.

  • Design must be uploaded in a web ready format (JPG, GIF or PNG.)

  • Designs may not contain any copyrighted or trademarked elements other than elements owned by the entrant and/or World View.

  • The winning design must be submitted in scalable vector graphic format (EPS) and JPG.
From June 24 to July 8, the public is invited to vote on their favorite designs to advance to the semi-final round. Those who vote will be entered in a drawing to receive a t-shirt featuring the winning design. The winner will be chosen by a panel of judges including World View CEO Jane Poynter, Director or Flight Crew Operations Mark Kelly, and CTO Taber MacCallum and will be announced July 16.

"Seeing the Earth from space is a profound experience that has the power to change lives and change the world," said Jane Poynter, CEO of World View. "As we work toward our launch, we hope to garner input and support from the countless millions who believe in our mission. In a small but significant way, this design competition allows space enthusiasts to be a part of World View's journey and leave their mark on space."

*Trip includes exclusive access to Inaugural Voyager Gala for winner and a guest as well as transportation and lodging.

About World View Experience

World View is a transformative space travel experience launching in late 2016 – one that will have you floating more than 100,000 feet above the atmosphere, gently ascending under a high-altitude balloon and floating gracefully to the edge of space.

I just submitted my entry into the contest. To my fellow artists: "I can't wish you luck, but I do wish you well."

Can the design be hand drawn and scanned onto file for submission? Can anyone clarify this for me? Thanks!

Based on the design guidelines, contest submissions are allowed in PNG, JPEG or GIF format, which would allow for scanned hand-drawn entries.

But that said, it must be "web-ready" and the winning design must be available as a vector graphic (Adobe Illustrator or EPS).

Based on that, it would seem they are looking for computer-drawn entries.

You could inquire with them. Maybe you can submit a hand-drawn entry for the voting period and then use the time to prepare (or have someone work with you to prepare) web-ready art.

For what it's worth, they've missed any submission of mine as well for the same reason. I don't do vector art, I'm a professionally-trained old-school artist and designer...

Beautiful design Tim! I wish you the very best of luck and hope that one of us can pull off a win! It'll be interesting to see if the judges lean more towards a patch-style design or a simpler corporate-style one.

Good luck to everyone who participated! Here is my design.

Looks like all three winning designs were done by the same person.

I liked IconDesign29's design way more than any of the winning ones...

Thank you for the kind words, p51. I really appreciate it.

Honestly, I found those 3 selections to be rather disappointing and surprising. But I do realize that there's something to be said for simplicity and that's what won in this case.

Perhaps they thought mine and Tim's designs were too complex to be embroidered... Even though we all know that the technology today allows for detailed designs to be embroidered beautifully!

Nevertheless, thank you to everyone who voted for our designs!

All of your designs deserved to be the winner... But only one of them could be. At last (and Tim knows very well my personal point of view) "simpliest is better".
Great artworks guys. The future of the space patches is, I'm sure, guaranteed with you.
