Inspired by Chemists

Another eye on IYC2011

Graphic designer and illustrator Simon C. Page produced a series of beautiful posters inspired by chemists and their contributions to humankind.

At the end of 2009 Page did some prints for the International Year of Astronomy which, unexpectedly, was a massive hit and really helped promote the campaign.

This year and to take part in the IYC 2011 celebrations, Page returned to his studio and got inspired by chemists and their contributions to humankind—Einstein’s atomic theory of matter, John Dalton’s law of conservation of mass, Hanns-Peter Boehm’s discover of graphene and more.

Each print is accredited a famous chemist or discovery which has inspired the design.
