Link of the Week: Philographics
How can design make philosophy easier to understand? That’s the question that designer Genis Carreras sought to answer with Philographics, a series of minimalistic designs that explain complex philosophical theories. Through the clever use of basic shapes and colors, this project distills concepts that are normally the purview of academics into simple graphics that viewers intuitively understand. (For example, a series of overlapping gray circles represents relativism and a small black circle on a white background represents absolutism.)
Carreras’ Philographics illustrate how design can be used to communicate complex information in a way that is easy for people to grasp. And, for that reason, they are nothing short of brilliant.
