Designer Amy Gish was inspired by the 10-year anniversary edition of Reservoir Dogs when she created the Expedition 23 crew poster. “I wanted a design that was fluid, so I would be able to switch out crewmembers if needed,” she explains.
Gish remembers her time at NASA with great fondness: “I worked with some amazing artists,” she says. “It was an amazingly positive experience. And it was fun—I got to color all day; you can’t complain about that!”
