Minimalist Posters That Cleverly Showcase Famous Scientists

Posters that subtly highlight famous discoveries
Look at these clever images that point to scientists' contributions to the world. This would be a fun project for students to undertake - representing a discovery using only the researcher's name and an optional additional graphic element.

"For decades, that one poster of Einstein sticking his tongue out has been the go-to dorm-room decoration for eager science majors. Thankfully for the design-savvy future physicists of the world, Indian graphic designer Kapil Bhagat celebrated his home country's recent National Science Day by creating a series of attractive posters that subtly highlight famous scientists' most important discoveries. Darwin's theory of evolution plays out typographically; the "o" in Newton's name becomes his famous apple; and, yes, Einstein's famous equation gets a clever shout out."
