We close 2014 with reveries of space

Out of This World

As one year draws to a close and we look forward to the next, our thoughts have turned toward the infinite—and, more specifically, to space and the beyond, and the imagination and drive of creative thinkers across the world.

In this spirit, for your viewing pleasure, we've put together a slideshow of some of our favorite celestial, extraterrestrial images, including beauties from the landmark Apollo 8 mission—the first manned spaceship to leave the Earth's orbit, reach our Moon, and return safely to Earth—which took place this month 46 years ago.

It’s inspiring and quite humbling, in fact, to consider how far we’ve come in just the past half century, led by man’s passion for discovery and connectivity. We recognize how small we are in relation to our Solar System, our galaxy, and our universe. At the same time, it’s impossible to ignore just how incredibly powerful our global community is; bolstered by technology, we are able to celebrate and cultivate imagination without limits.

As we look around at the current design landscape, that sense of exploration and communication is alive and well, and we’re filled with great optimism. If the past year’s depth and breadth of talent—emerging from places as disparate as Botswana, Korea, Scotland, and Mexico—is any indication, next year is going to be extraordinary.

Thanks for being a part of our community. We wish you and yours a happy holiday season and a bright new year. We’ll see you in January.
