Ross Berens

Posted by Alex

Ah yes Outer Space, one of my favorite subjects. Ross Bernes does it justice here in his Under the Milky Way series. These have been floating around the blogosphere for some time, but I only recently discovered Mr. Berens and his many talents (and at such a young age!). As he mentions on his site, these were each done in 2-3 hours — I wonder what he could do with a whole day. I was also very impressed with the logo for his blog, NVSBLTY.

I’ve had the Jupiter poster as my wallpaper for my vertical screen for a while now. Still very happy with it, I really hope this series. I just wish he would give higher resolutions. Thanks for the tumblr though, I didn’t know the link!

I was hanging out with Ross while he designed most of these posters so I can indeed confirm that they were done in around 2-3 hours.

Hopefully Ross changed the typo in the copy for Saturn. He spells Saturn as “Satur”. I have a print with that error and it kills me whenever I notice it.

Hey Todd, thanks for bringing that to my attention, I’m working on getting a corrected file to the printer right now. I’m sorry about your poster!

Great work. Always appreciate space focused design. Thanks for including Pluto!

@ Josh Veal – so you are telling us that Ross designed these in 2-3 hours while engaging in a game of Halo? Incredible … Epic, even.

Very attractive pieces, though the first paragraph indent on the Pluto and Uranus pieces are a bit jarring.

Got to love designing while playing HALO. A skill every designer should master. Well played Ross.

By the way, what are you up to these days? I saw it listed you were still in school — any new work on the way?

@ Alex

Yeah, I’m about half way through school… I’ll most likely update my website at the end of this semester with my new school work and a spread I did for WIRED UK that I still need to get online.

Thanks again!
