(if you have the patience, you can actually use this crazy thing to create a timeline visual for your process portfolio.. But the interactive part is not viable to slides)

https://www.stedmunds.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/2016/05/Design-Movements-Timeline.pdf

Not official and complete… but fun & quick … industrial design focus
