From the big bang all the way to Usain Bolt’s 9.58 second hundred- meter dash record in 2009, French graphic designer René Mambembé takes us on a minimalist journey through history. With clean, simple designs to represent each major event, looking through his work is almost like taking a history quiz to see how many key moments you can identify. After the dinosaurs and the Ice Age, Mambembé starts with Cubism in the 1900′s and goes decade by decade highlighting the most memorable occasions, ending with some likely predictions for the 2010′s. Brush up on your history by trying to label each minimalist design as you scroll through!

Mambembé is a graphic design student in his third year, working towards a Master’s degree in Information Design at L’école de Design in Nantes Atlantique, France. He is hoping for a 6 month internship to further develop his design skills, so spread the word and shoot him an email if you can help. See more of his designs on his website and Behance. You can also follow him on Facebook.
