Graphic Philosophy

London based graphic designer Genis Carreras (or ‘gex’ as he likes to call himself) has created a series of minimalist and witty Philosophy Posters. The project is an attempt to explain complex philosophical theories through basic shapes. Carreras offers his take on such ideas as solipsism, humanism, determinism, absolutism, relativism, nihilism and many others.

These aesthetically pleasing pieces are also aiming for an educational value, which is why each poster includes a brief summery of the philosophical notion. There is also a book in the works, called Philographics, in which all these posters are compiled for one very short read. Who knows, maybe minimalism is all we need to make other ‘isms’ easier to grasp…
