竞赛丨新太空时代/Advent of a new space age
UNI invites Architects, Visual/Graphic Designers, and the student fraternity for the second edition of its series of Graphic Design Challenges as part of its unit block, Graphis. Challenges under ‘Graphis’ are carefully curated to bring out the best of visual communication and graphic language to educate, reflect, and inspire change with respect to pertinent world issues through visuals. A picture is worth a thousand words, and Graphis abides by that adage, to inspire participants to try and portray complex ideas and emotions through a still image.The competition understands the importance of efficient and effective communication in the digital age and aims to recognize innovative ideas and techniques that aim to redefine the notions guiding conventional graphic design, and foremost, create impact.UNI邀请建筑师、视觉/图形设计师和学生参加第二届图形设计挑战，作为其单元块Graphis的一部分。图形设计挑战是精心策划的，以发挥视觉传达和图形语言的最佳效果，通过视觉来教育、反映和激发有关世界问题的变化。一幅图像抵得上千言万语，Graphis也遵循这句格言，通过静止的图像来激励参与者尝试描绘复杂的思想和情感。 本次竞赛体现了数字时代高效沟通的重要性，旨在确认创新理念和技术，旨在重新定义指导传统平面设计的理念，最重要的是创造影响。On May 30, 2020, a commercial rocket for the first-time ferried astronauts into Earth orbit. SpaceX’s Crew Dragon spacecraft took off at 3:22 p.m. EDT from the Kennedy Space Center. That’s in Cape Canaveral, Fla. It carried U.S. astronauts Doug Hurley and Bob Behnken to the International Space Station (ISS). Called Demo-2, the launch and flight were the ultimate tests of the ability to use this new system to take a crew into orbit. The Falcon 9 rocket then returned to Earth and safely landed on a platform, followed by the astronauts returning safely a few weeks ago.This event marks a point in the history of the human civilization of bringing back a lost cause of exploring space back into the priority among our pursuits as a species. This also marks the first step of humans progressing to a multi-planetary species in years to come. The challenge is to design a graphic/poster that aims to inform and make people aware of this exceptional feat and inspiring more human thought weighing on these facets of explorations. 2020年5月30日，一枚商业火箭首次将宇航员送入地球轨道。美国东部时间下午3点22分，SpaceX的“神龙”号飞船从肯尼迪航天中心起飞。那是在佛罗里达州卡纳维拉尔角，它载着美国宇航员道格·赫尔利和鲍勃·本肯前往国际空间站。这次发射和飞行被称为Demo-2，是对使用这一新系统将机组人员送入轨道能力的终极考验。随后，“猎鹰9号”火箭返回地球并安全降落在一个平台上，随后宇航员几周前安全返回。You have to deliver a graphic/visual outcome representing the given theme, based on the following outlines.
