NSS Banner Design Matter


All submitted designs must contain the words National Space Society and the  NSS Logo. You can download the logo that best fits into your design by clicking here.  The design should be oriented to fit a banner that is 6.0 ft wide x 2.5 ft high. It will be printed on vinyl giving it a longer life for outdoor use. When deciding on a theme keep in mind that the creation of a new banner design is being made to inspire the viewer to take action. It must draw the attention of those who view it to imprint the name National Space Society as the place to join, NOW, to get actively involved in the pursuit of space exploration and settlement.


Additional details as to acceptable content and how judges will be evaluating the designs can be found in the Judging Guidelines for Submitted Designs page.

The banner will be 6 feet by 2.5 feet in size, so the original design must be created at a size of 21,600 pixels wide by 9,000 pixels high in either RGB or CMYK color (which corresponds to 6 ft. x 2.5 ft. at 300 dpi).
