AUTHOR: Genis Carreras, a graphic designer based in London.
DESCRIPTION: Philosophical concepts are explained through simple shapes in this poster series. Geometry and color are used to illustrate the different notions as accurately as possible. A short text also explains each concept in case the minimalist illustration is not clear enough. The posters are available on Genis Carreras’ society6.
AMUSEMENT RATE: It can be difficult to wrap your head around philosophy. There are so many different concepts, notions and movements that it is easy to mistake one for the other and so on. These posters can be a visual guide that will help understand the most common terms. The white saltire representing nihilism speaks for itself, so does the interweaved squares and circles for idealism. If you have a visual memory, carefully remember all of the shapes and you are bound to impress guests at any dinner party.
