HUGE Creative Reflects on Life on Mars

Not to be outdone by new colleague Jon Jackson, who broke up with L.A. via billboard a few months back, HUGE creative director Andrew Kessler is pushing his own side project of sorts which is a book called Martian Summer, a personal account of his 90 days in mission control with the 130 NASA scientists and engineers of The Phoenix Mars expedition. Kessler was the first outsider granted access to Phoenix’s fortress of solitude for such an event and spent the summer of 2008 watching as robots were sent to the Red Planet to dig up soil, take 3-D pics and much more.

HUGE has gotten behind the project, natch, creating a site and a series of promos in recent weeks to promote Kessler’s chronicle, which contain exclusive footage from NASA (example above) and behind-the-scenes looks into mission control. Watch another clip after the jump. Martian Summer hits shelves on April 15.

HUGE’s New CD Breaks up with L.A. via Billboards

Jackson bowed out of the City of Angels in grand fashion, buying up billboard space and sending a message to his home turf on his way out. Jackson was a former CD at Nitro and will officially join HUGE in January.  Sorry again, Costanza.
