When, in many years from now, you finally come to meet your maker (we’re hoping for shuffling off in our sleep aged 90 having spent the night drinking very expensive red wine with Girls Aloud, but that’s just us), how will your life be remembered?

We can all hope for something dramatically exciting, but in reality we’re thinking: birth, school, work, death. In short, we doubt anyone will be using our lives as a basis for some ace part mathematical formula/part linear artwork.

Unlike Michael Jackson, Julius Caesar, Bruce Lee, Darth Vader and others. These grand historical figures have had their colourful lives condensed into a simple storyboard that is as clever as it is aesthetically pleasing.

The work of Milan-based design studio H-57, we think they might just catch on. Moreover, they might also spur us on to actually do something with our tawdry lives

For more H-57 goodness head here.
