NEOs—Near Earth Objects—encompasses the different types of rocks found in space, including asteroids, meteoroids, planet rocks, and comets.


Create an illustration of one space age toy or object and design the packaging for that particular object, featuring your illustration and adding text to it.

The purpose of this simplified toy is to allow audiences to use their imagination and personalize their own rocks, while also developing basic human characteristics (e.g., responsibility and nurture). At the same time, audiences are also encouraged to learn about the variety of rocks found in space.


Final Deliverables

The toy resembles that of a vintage space toy from the 60's, from the color palette to the typefaces to illustrations done on Illustrator CC. I also wanted to simplify the design in terms of composition and readability.
