Life in Five Seconds: Everything in pictograms

Life in Five Seconds takes 200 notable happenings in the world — historical events, inventions, lives, places, animals and icons — and strips away all the useless stuff to present the basic bits in beautifully minimalistic pictograms. Matteo Civaschi and Gianmarco Milesi from Milan-based design and ad studio H-57 are behind it. Clever.
