Thought it time to give out a little design swag, and as I’m constantly sketching lettertypes, I implemented some stylizations for a character set, and big geek as I am, yes, they’re the planetary symbols. They include the Sun, Moon, the eight major planets (Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune), the five current dwarf planets (Eris, Pluto, Makemake, Haumea, and Ceres), and two less-used alternates (for Uranus and Pluto).
Trick with the dwarf planets (geek time here), is that the three newest—Eris, Haumea, and Makemake—don’t have any official symbol. Eris appears to have a de facto symbol relating to it’s namesake’s discordant nature. The other two weren’t so easy. There were a couple resources where individuals have endeavored to create a symbol based on the Hawaiian pictographs relating to Haumea or the Rapanui image of Makemake, and they seem to be repeated, so without better information or an IAU ruling, I’m adapting those also.
Right, geek time over. I’m posting two variations for non-commercial use. Please download, enjoy, and contact me to discuss any use for commercial projects. I’m retaining copyright on these as I like them very much.
