Minimal illustration is not an easy task. Deliver a message with minimal design requires initial planning and creative thinking. Often times using minimal designs in poster printing layouts can help communicate your messaging better than overly cluttered posters where the message is often lost. Here, I found these well-designed graphic strip illustrations that depict the life of some famous historical figures.

"Graphic strips in a very simple, essential style (the kind of basic graphics used in road signs). Not more than 3 or 4 steps to explain very complex facts regarding politics, economy, history or whatever we want. Every fact and every story, no matter how articulated and complex it is, can be summed up in not more than a few points. It’s the power of Typodesign!"
