Leading Ladies of Science: A Typographic Tribute

Women in science

To go along with his male-centric scientist minimalist typography series, Kapil Bhagat has added to it some of the most important females in science. With the popularity of his first set- Edison, Einstein, Copernicus, Galileo, Archimedes, Tesla, Darwin, and Pythagoras- he received requests for some of the leading ladies too, so on the anniversary of Marie Curie’s death he released this set. Honoring Marie Curie, Grace Hopper, Rosalind Franklin, Ada Lovelace, Barbara McClintock and Maria Mitchell, Bhagat creatively designs a way to show what each woman is famous for in her name.


Entertaining Typography of Famous Scientists’ names


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.
