Can I just say that Smashing Magazine is the single resource I use the most on a regular basis. That site is just packed with the greatest stuff! In fact in led me to these wonderful creations.
These stunning pieces were created by UK designer Simon C Page for the IYC 2011. This organization’s goal is to increase the public appreciation and interest in Chemistry (weird, right?). Nevertheless, the artwork is stunning despite the goal behind it. If you want to learn more about the inspiration behind individual pieces, please check out the original post here.
In 2009, the same designer created a similar series of posters for the International Year of Astronomy.
I just can’t get enough of this style. When this retro-minimalist theme is done right, it is really done right.
