Kapil Bhagat created a whole series of these fantastic minimalist scientist posters for India’s National Science Day. Less is more, especially when it comes to poster design. But the key to keeping a minimalist poster from being boring is creating a little joke or pun.

The “aha!” moment is when people fall in love with the design and Bhagat has created one of those moments for each poster. Copernicus circumnavigated the globe, so the C in his name goes around the rest of the name. Get it? See if you can catch all the other nerdy science jokes.
