In light of National Science Day in India, Mumbai-based graphic designer Kapil Bhagat created a series of typography graphics honoring some of the most famous scientists that have lived. Whichever was that particular Scientist’s breakthrough discovery is implied in the image. Newton’s apple is substituted with an O on the ground, Galileo’s telescope is visible as an L, and the O in Edison is lit up like a light bulb.

Currently searching for what is next in his life, Kapil continues to experiment with his graphic design. He keeps his Tumblr regularly updated with his works. Some themes in what inspires him include his home country of India, an important event relating to the day, or just a “random illustration.” Check out his Tumblr if you are interested to learn more about his work. His prints are available for purchase at society6.
