This is an archive of emblems that I design as an ongoing personal project.
Embroidered patches for space missions have been around since the early days of human spaceflight. They serve as a symbol of human curiosity, innovation and as a way to honor these ambitious projects.

The Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) is the world’s largest gravitational wave observatory with its 4 km long L-shaped tubes.

What Einstein predicted with his theory of relativity in 1916, was detected directly with the LIGO instruments for the first time in human history in 2015: The existence of gravitational waves. These are ripples in spacetime, caused by colliding neutron stars or black holes.
