A veces para entender las grandes ideas de la vida sólo hay que ir de regreso a la infancia. Combinando imágenes y filosofía en diseños llamados Philografías, Genis Carreras ha desarrollado conceptos simples para ejemplificar un diccionario filosófico.

Después de 2 años, Genís Carreras ha lanzado una campaña en Kickstarterla plataforma más importante a nivel mundial para fondear ideas, que parece que ha capturado la imaginación de amantes de la filosofía y del diseño de todo el mundo. Al diccionario de Filosofía de Standfor le toma 28 250 palabras para explicarte el concepto del Relativismo, a Genis Carreras le tomó 32 palabras y una imagen.

Philography will also be available in a luxurious tome (think same designs in a larger format) with a quality hardcover and with it, plenty of academic potential making it an excellent teaching aid for philosophy professors, who have a hard time condensing such complex concepts into bite-sized portions of knowledge. ”I first fell in love with philosophy when I read ‘Thus Spoke Zarathustra‘ at the age of 15”,  Carreras explains of his love for philosophy and of art: ”Design came earlier, since I first started to draw.” Born in 1987, the Catalan designer further explains the relationship between the visual sensibility and novel concepts that are about to turn him into an entrepreneur, good and proper! ”The goal was to create a new language to communicate philosophy visually, sometimes illustrating metaphors and other times reinventing existent symbols,” he says. ”Part of the fun is that each shape can be interpreted in so many different ways. So where some people associate the pink triangle for Hedonism with homosexuality, others see a part of the female anatomy. But one thing is for sure: when you look at the entire collection as a whole, it all makes perfect sense!

The Philography Kickstarter campaign ends on Thursday May 23, 10:25am EDT.
