I’m a firm supporter of the sciences, even though most of the time I can’t comprehend the things being done. So when I got an impassioned email from a reader I had to do something. From Sarah:
Wondered if you would be interested in creating an article about the International Year of Chemistry which was this year 2011? There seems to be a distinct lack of PR around it and I would hate for it to go unnoticed being a scientist myself. Simon did a great job in 2009 for the International Year of Astronomy with his posters and it would be nice to get some interest and awareness made about this via his work.
I posted about his posters back in 2009 and it’s great to see him back at it again. For his 2011 posters he’s celebrated famous figures who’ve helped in the field of chemistry, folks you may know like Albert Einstein and Marie Curie. I love the simplicity of these posters and the choice of type is particularly well done as well.
