Short Cuts: Navigate Your Way Through Big Ideas is a series of books from UniPress Books that provides readers with a gateway to exploring complex and challenging concepts. Each book in the series contains 50 questions, each with a concise answer written by an expert in the field. The answers are accompanied by full-page illustrations that help to make the concepts more accessible and memorable.
I had the pleasure of contributing to one of the first books in the series – Short Cuts: Philosophy. For this project, I created 50 illustrations that explore a wide range of philosophical topics, from metaphysics to AI intelligence. These illustrations effectively convey ideas in a concise and thought-provoking manner through the use of symbols.
The book was printed in three solid colors: blue, yellow, and pink. Shadows are created by the use of overprints and opacities, resulting in a visually striking and conceptually rich aesthetic.
