Marilyn Monroe Timeline

Marilyn Monroe Timeline

On the 1st of June, 2018, American actress, singer and model Marilyn Monroe would have turned 92. One of the biggest sex symbols of the 1950s and best known for her comic blonde bombshell roles, Ms. Monroe managed to build a legacy that persists even to this day, more than half a century after her death.

To celebrate the birthday of one of the emblematic pop culture icons of the 20th century, we have created the Marilyn Monroe Timeline, which highlights some of the most notable events and achievements of her all-too-brief life and career.

Born as Norma Jeane Mortenson, she overcame an unfortunate childhood and worked in a radioplane factory until she was discovered by a photographer and began a fruitful pin-up modelling career. Soon afterwards, at the age of 20, she signed her first movie contract and adopted the stage name and signature look that would later establish her among Hollywood’s most popular celebrities.

Her earliest roles garnered the large public’s attention and contributed to her winning the status of sex symbol and top-billed actress of that time. However, they also diminished her acting scope as they focused on her sex appeal and insisted on the image of the “bubbly blonde”. Tired of being typecast and underpaid by the film studio to the profit of which she was bringing significant contribution, she left Hollywood for New York to study acting and found her own film production company.

Initially considered as lacking star acting material, Marilyn Monroe would return to the screen and prove her skills by winning two Golden Globes for Best Actress and various honors at European cinema award ceremonies. Monroe’s battle for control over her career was ridiculed in the press at first, but eventually yielded a successful outcome, with her contract being renegotiated and more favorable terms granted. Thus, she became more in charge of what movie projects to get involved in, which enabled her to display a richer range of acting skills.

Striving to improve her performance, the actress is said to have been a perfectionist on the set, a feature that made many of the co-stars label her as difficult to work with. Magnetic on the screen, controversial in personal life, Marilyn Monroe has been imitated by several celebrities over the years and continues to be admired for her beauty and persona.

The Marilyn Monroe chronology was built with Office Timeline, a simple to use yet efficient PowerPoint plugin that helps you generate impressive project schedules, timelines and other similar visuals with only a few clicks. The image is free to copy and share and can be edited or restyled using the Plus edition of the tool.

Jamie Oliver Timeline

Jamie Oliver Timeline

This Sunday, British celebrity chef Jamie Oliver turns 43. His rise to fame came at the age of 22, when he was noticed by the BBC after an unscripted appearance in a documentary about The River Café, where he was working as a sous chef. Shortly afterwards, he debuted as the host of the cooking show The Naked Chef, which ran for three seasons and three Christmas specials. His Mockney dialect, relaxed style and simplified approach to gourmet recipes won the viewers’ hearts and inspired more men to cook. After his break into television, the Clavering-born talent became an international phenomenon, starring into subsequent TV series, authoring several cookbooks and inaugurating multiple popular restaurant chains.

To celebrate Mr. Oliver’s 43rd birthday, we have created the Jamie Oliver Timeline, which illustrates important events, ventures and achievements in his life.

In addition to presenting successful TV cooking programs and launching his own line of cookware and restaurants, Jamie Oliver has also championed healthier eating habits for pupils in the UK. The show “Jamie’s School Dinners”, which documented his efforts to train a group of school cafeteria employees to prepare new and healthier dishes for students, helped him launch the campaign “Feed Me Better”. It advocated the improvement of the quality of food served in the UK’s schools and determined the British government to take measures in this respect, by increasing the amount spent on each school meal.

The Jamie Oliver chronology was designed using Office Timeline, an add-in for PowerPoint that helps you create professional timelines, Gantt charts and project visuals effortlessly. The tool is available in two versions, Free and Plus, with the former enabling you to build and edit simple graphics, and the latter coming with a higher degree of customization and extra features such as data import and update functions.

The Academy Awards Timeline

Academy Awards Timeline

The 16th of May, 1929, represents the date when the first edition of the Academy Awards took place. The event, also known as the Oscars, is held annually to recognize artistic and technical merits in the American cinema industry as assessed by the voting membership of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. The ceremony, during which cinematic achievements from 24 categories are awarded, has served as a model for the Emmy Awards (its equivalent for television), the Tony Awards (theater) and the Grammy Awards (music).

To celebrate the world’s oldest entertainment awards ceremony, we have created the Academy Awards Timeline, which highlights a series of interesting facts from its history.

The inaugural edition of the Oscars was held at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel with 270 people in the audience. Honoring participants in the film-making industry of the time for their works between 1927 and 1928, the first Academy Awards presentation ran for 15 minutes only. The winners received a gold-plated bronze statuette, now officially named Oscar, which was created by American sculptor George Stanley. For three years during World War II, because of a metal shortage, the statuettes were made of painted plaster. However, after the WWII was over, the Academy enabled the recipients to replace their plaster trophies with gold-plated metal ones.

Initially held within a private dinner function, the ceremony is now broadcast live in more than 200 countries.

The Academy Awards chronology was created with Office Timeline, an easy-to-use PowerPoint plugin that helps you quickly make elegant timelines, Gantt charts and other similar graphics. You can copy and share the image for free, and update and edit it using the Plus version of the tool.

Salvador Dali Timeline

Space X Timeline

Today, 114 years ago, subversive Spanish surrealist Salvador Dalí was born. Best known for the bizarre and intriguing images used in his work, the man behind the famous “I don’t do drugs, I am drugs” quote distinguished himself not only as a preeminent artist, but also as a maverick in his personal life. One of the salient members of the Surrealist movement, he dabbled in several artistic disciplines other than painting. He worked with film directors, designed jewelry and costumes, and created advertisements, sculptures and installation art, all with a quirky sense of experimentalism.

To celebrate the author of the iconic ode to time - “The Persistence of Memory”, we have created the Salvador Dalí Timeline, which retraces some of the most notable events in his life.

Born in Figueres as Salvador Felipe Jacinto Dalí i Domènech, he attended the drawing school and, at the age of 13, had his charcoal drawings exhibited in his family home by his father. Three years later, the Municipal Theatre in his hometown hosted his first public exhibition. Dalí then enrolled at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts of San Fernando in Madrid, where he also first came into contact with the Surrealist movement. Expelled from the Academy right before his final exams under the accusation of having started an unrest, he nevertheless continued his creative endeavors that were to turn him into an enduring figure in the history of art.

Although generally associated with specific works nowadays, Dalí is still impossible to pin down. Creator of hallucinatory dreamscapes, indulging in off-the-wall behavior, he equally inspired and appalled, and was simultaneously revered and despised; however, he unquestionably captured everyone’s attention. He was banished from the artistic group to the recognition of which he significantly contributed, but also appeared on the cover of Time magazine, was the madman in one of the sequences of Hitchcock’s film Spellbound, and ultimately made an undisputable impact on the 20th century art.

The Salvador Dalí chronology was built with Office Timeline, a user-friendly PowerPoint add-in that enables you to create professional-looking timelines, project schedules and other similar visuals with ease. You can update or edit the image using the Plus version of the tool.

Aiming to reduce the costs of space transportation and enable the colonization of Mars, the private aerospace manufacturer has already developed 2 series of advanced launch vehicles that currently deliver payloads into Earth orbit.

To honor the company that has literally taken rocket science to new heights, we have created the SpaceX Timeline, which overviews the achievements that have earned the manufacturer worldwide attention and the reputation of a truly groundbreaking enterprise.

Although a relatively young company, SpaceX has reached so far several milestones that have revolutionized the history of space exploration. Only 6 years after its outset, SpaceX successfully launched the first privately funded rocket to reach orbit. This ensued a whole range of other premieres, such as the first controlled flyback and recovery of a payload fairing from the International Space Station, marking a decisive progress in terms of rocket reusability.

Born out of Elon Musk’s project to land a small experimental greenhouse on Mars to grow plants, SpaceX has rapidly developed into a fully-fledged space transportation services supplier with over 100 missions to its manifest, which makes it the world’s leading commercial launch provider.

The SpaceX chronology was designed using Office Timeline, an intuitive and efficient PowerPoint plugin that easily generates impressive project plans, Gantt charts, and timelines. The image, which is free to copy and reproduce, can be updated and restyled using the Plus version of the tool.
