Introducing: Space Horizons!

August 02, 2016

Introducing: Space Horizons!

Since the space race began, generations of Americans have been captivated by the idea of outer space. Science fiction fantasies have filled the pop-culture long before space travel was feasible. During the Space Race of the 1960's artists were hard at work inspiring the nation to reach for the stars. We're in the midst of similarly exciting moment today, with government organizations like NASA and private space companies like SpaceX accelerating the pace on innovation more than ever before. Our collective imaginations are again gripped by new images of exploration and breakthrough. 

That's why we're inviting artists and designers to bring their talents to this historic moment, in creating a new collection of mission patch designs for as many past, present and future missions as we can. The new collection of art will work to excite the country around humanity's expanding reach beyond Earth. 

Thanks to Matter.vc for hosting our Launch Pop-Up on 8/4/16 in NYC.

Thanks to the amazing team at Meural for the beautiful wall canvas to showcase Space Horizons art! 

Submitted designs will be available for sale on our website, and via retail partners, as posters, t-shirts, and other quality products to support the artists and SpaceHorizons, an innovative non profit that promotes interest in STEM education for minority and female students in underserved communities. Check out these photos from their recent balloon launch experiment in the Mojave desert!

We're excited to announce our new face mask collection that gives free masks to workers! For every mask we sell, we donate a mask to a essential worker who needs one.

Elections are coming and the excitement of change is in the air! As we gear up to vote in a few months and look forward to a better future, we can't help but think back to a century ago when the 19th Amendment was officially adopted and women finally won the right to vote. It's been a hundred years and we've come a long way, but there are is still plenty of work to be done, which is why we've partnered with independent artists to create a collection of the best feminist gifts as we head into November. Every feminist gift we sell helps support UltraViolet organization in their hard work to advance the cause of all women, and we won't stop marching until there's equality for all.
