Philographics by Genis Carreras

View all 12 Photos

Whether you ascribe to free will or determinism, there is one thing that is for certain: you won’t be able to resist the fun look of Genis Carreras’s Philographics. The collection of 48 posters – released in two installments – translate complicated political, social, religious, and economic theories into a simple and understandable graphic representation. Of course, each colorful work has a formal definition, but the bold lines and shapes that illustrate the concept read clearer and faster. Not one to show preference for one faction over another, Carreras wittingly produces them in pairs; for every advocate of altruism there shall be a cry for cynicism, and Carreras shows enough flexibility in thought to design both in a related, but undoubtedly distinct depiction.
