If you’ve never heard of street artist Shepard Fairey, you still might have seen his OBEY iconography somewhere without realizing it. His alternative style makes it all the more exciting when an organization like the mission of the Center for the Advancement of Science in Space–the group that manages the research lab aboard the ISS, wants to collaborate to create their new patch design.
These little embroidered beauties have just the right sense or retro-futuristic flare and contemporary boldness to pull of a really cool look. Am I a little jealous we didn’t get to play with a patch like this? Maybe. But it’s still fun to look at.
