The theme reflects our continued efforts and advancement in space while acknowledging how far the space industry has come in the last 50 years. Created in-house by Jason Stumpf, an interactive designer for the Space Foundation, the artwork displays some of the monumental achievements in space exploration including Sputnik, the Hubble Space Telescope, and the International Space Station, while peering into the vast reaches of space at potential discoveries and milestones yet to be achieved.
Stumpf, who has more than 15 years experience in the graphic arts field, joined the Foundation in 2004. He holds an associates degree in multimedia art from the Denver Art Institute and has previously worked in a wide variety of artistic mediums including printing, casting, airbrushing, and more. Amaranthine will be seen throughout the 24th National Space Symposium materials and as the symposium’s official poster.
The theme and accompanying artwork will be carried throughout the symposium from the exhibit center to a program agenda that will feature leaders from across the space industry. These individuals who represent both the history and future of this $220 billion industry will highlight the accomplishments and look forward to the opportunities and issues facing the space industry today.
