NASA Launches Mars 2020 Logo

For the recent launch this summer of the Mars Rover, NASA asked Tobias van Schneider of the House of van Schneider to design a symbol capturing the energy and legacy of space travel, while celebrating the engineers working on the mission. At once an abstract representation of the iconic rover and blocks reaching up to the sky, the logomark appears on both the rover and on the 191-foot tall rocket ship. The icon is intended to capture the essence of the small motorized vehicle – wheels, body, and camera – inside a red circle with Earth depicted as a star. The rover mission can be followed online and is expected to reach Mars in February 2021.
