Major: Graphic Design
Genre/Medium: Digital Illustration and hand-stitched patch
About the work: Since the Psyche Mission is made possible through the efforts of team members from various disciplines, I wanted to create something that could hypothetically serve as a unifying identifier for the team. Patches can be easily added to apparel, bags, or otherwise, allowing the team to use them as they wish.
Psyche Inspired is a program that brings undergraduate students from any discipline or major together to share the excitement, innovation, and scientific and engineering content of NASA’s Psyche mission with the public in new ways through artistic and creative works. These works are posted in the gallery above and highlighted on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram. View the full resolution images in the image gallery. ASU undergraduate Brooke Owen is the student manager of Psyche Inspired, assisted by ASU undergraduate Kaxandra Nessi. This year’s Psyche Inspired cohort is known as the Cobalt Class.

Psyche Inspired was piloted at ASU during the 2017-2018 academic year. The works from the 2017-2018 Psyche Inspired cohort (known as the Titanium Class) are collected in a downloadable book that tells the story of Psyche through musical scores, sculptures, painting, 3-D models, photography, acrylic art, needlepoint, stop-motion films, and mixed media.
Psyche Inspired was expanded nationally during the 2018-2019 academic year. The works from the 2018-2019 Psyche Inspired cohort (known as the Iron Class) will be available in a downloadable book shortly.
