clever minimalist science posters

Designer Kapil Bhagat created these posters reflecting scientist and their discoveries/work. I find them so clever. Such a simple concept, yet only a great designer could create.

You can see a few more here, as well as if you don't understand what they mean there's brief explanation under each one.

thursday. (douglas booth edition.)

Have I already done a thursday post just for him? I can't even remember. Either way, I'm just loving him lately, so he deserves another one. Who doesn't love all these british boys anyways?

Mainly, I think I love how supportive he is of Emma Watson and her new campaign. Their friendship is adorable.
