Minimalist Diagrams and Maps That Simplify Complex Ideas by Archie Archambault

If you ever feel lost in a new city, or anatomy, galaxy, setting a table, whatever it is, Archie Archambault (of Archie’s Press) is the person to turn to. Archie creates some awesome minimalist diagrams that simplify every confusing form and idea.

Archambault started creating these chart series when he was living in Portland, and found it difficult to get around the city. We are talking pre-smartphone era, when Google Maps wasn’t an option. As a result, Archambault came up with an awesome idea how to help him not to get lost in this big city.

As he was exploring the streets on his bicycle, he started putting pieces of the city on the paper. Afterwards he started traveling more and more in order to illustrate the whole city in a map. These trips of his took a long time, but we can say the results are quite helpful and amazing.

Therefore, this idea of simplifying things unfolded in many areas as well. Archambault started making diagrams of anatomy of the human body, outer space, food, and so much more. In a word, Archie’s work will give you an answer to anything you need to know regarding these topics.

Climate Change Signs: How Do We Know?

Our climate is changing around us faster than predicted. From more frequent and extreme storms to unprecedented heatwaves, we’re indeed feeling the impacts of human-caused global warming. The icebergs are melting, various locations are experiencing greater flooding, wildfires are happening more frequently, and so on.

Specifically, scientists have studied past climate changes to understand the factors that can cause the planet to warm or cool. The big ones are changes in solar energy, ocean circulation, volcanic activity as well as the number of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. Thus, they have each played a role at times. However, human activities are not an exception since it is believed to be main contributors to such increases in average global temperatures

And although we’re all concerned about climate change when it looks like a problem for future generations, we still ask ourselves, ‘will climate change even affect me?’ No matter what we care about, climate change is already affecting our world today. While we still have time to limit the worst impact, we have collected 15 great reasons to start acting now.

These photos illustrate the state of the planet and our climate, as it has changed over the past decade. They reveal how much seriously we must consider the climate change issues!
