Another eye on IYC2011

Activity by Simon Page   |   added on Nov 11, 2011 Official_iyc_logo


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

Now we are in 2011 and this year it is the turn of the International Year of Chemistry. The goals of IYC 2011 are to increase the public appreciation of Chemistry in meeting world needs, to encourage interest in Chemistry among young people, and to generate enthusiasm for the creative future of Chemistry.

!! See all IYC 11 posters !!
The series is 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. 

Topic: celebrating chemistry Audience: general public
