Brand Identity, Product Design

For the 2020 Mars Rover launch, NASA commissioned HOVS to design a symbol celebrating both the legacy of space travel, and the energy of this new mission. At once the rover in abstract and blocks reaching to the sky, the logomark worked as well on NASA gear as it did on the rocket ship.

AD ASTRA — A movie poster for Brad Pitt’s cinematic venture into deep space.

Graphic Poster Design

The setting: deep space. The actor: Brad Pitt. The request: Design a poster for the film. Our work plays with white space and the acronym LOS, meaning Loss of Signal. While our designs were not ultimately the final poster, it was an honor to have our work considered for this film.

3 ROOMS — Creating a transportive digital art gallery that celebrates the early internet.

Brand, Storytelling, Webdesign

It started when we commissioned artist Jesperish to create three pieces of artwork incorporating the HOVS identity. Then it became bigger. We designed and built three rooms (works of art in themselves, in 40k pixel resolution) to feature each piece of art. Why? For pure fun & curiosity, like the good old days.
