Group Biography

Established in 2021 by Anne-Sofie Belling, Monika Brandić Lipińska, Paula Nerlich, and Layla van Ellen, Bio-Futures for Transplanetary Habitats is a research group born out of the collaborative efforts of PhD researchers at the Hub for Biotechnology in the Built Environment, jointly affiliated with Newcastle University and Northumbria University, UK. Formed to bridge diverse themes and disciplines, the group focuses on fostering bio-focused research and collaborations in space architecture and design, biological (inter)relations and technologies, and speculative transplanetary scenarios. The research group is always open to member applications and has an online platform enabling members to share their projects, updates, and calls for collaboration. Guided by core values, the group emphasizes the need for interdisciplinary research, bridging biotechnological and bio-social relations to make a lasting impact on the future of space exploration and habitation.

Logo Guidelines

  1. Clear Space: Maintain a clear space around the logo to ensure visibility and impact. The minimum clear space is equal to the height of X.

  2. Minimum Size: Preserve the integrity of the logo by adhering to the minimum size requirements. The logo should not be reproduced smaller than 1.5 inches in width.

  3. Color Variations: Use the provided color variations to suit different backgrounds. The full-color logo is preferred for most applications, while the monochrome version is suitable for black and white contexts.

  4. Placement: Position the logo in the top left corner for maximum visibility. Avoid crowding it with other visual elements to maintain its prominence.

  5. Background Contrast: Ensure a sufficient contrast between the logo and the background to guarantee legibility. If the background color is dark, use the white version of the logo.

  6. Proportions: Do not alter the proportions of the logo. Stretching, compressing, or skewing the logo distorts its intended visual impact.

  7. Unauthorized Modifications: Do not alter or modify the logo in any way, including changing colors, adding effects, or repositioning elements.

  8. Clear Background: When placing the logo on a colored background, use the version with a transparent background to maintain a seamless appearance.

  9. Social Media: For social media profiles, use the provided circular versions of the logo. Ensure that it fits within the platform's recommended dimensions.
