National Association of Rocketry “Pay Forward” logo

The National Association of Rocketry (NAR) asked me to create a logo for use in their “Pay Forward Proud” fundraising campaign. The design was inspired primarily by the classic Apollo project insignia. The logo also includes a subtly hidden visual reference to the NAR 60th anniversary, which was founded in 1957 by Orville Carlisle and G. Harry Stine. The logo appears on the NAR website, as well as the NAR Collection Twitter page. One of the rewards being offered to donors is a canvas print of the logo. The design features the prominent red NAR delta logo, which is a registered trademark of the association and is used with permission. More info: Dave Ginsberg Illustrator, Photoshop, 3ds max 2017
