4 years ago I made a project that mixed philosophy and graphic design, using simple shapes and colors to explain big ideas like Dualism, Existentialism or Determinism. I called it Philographics with the idea of making a visual dictionary of philosophy. And thanks to 1629 awesome backers I managed to self-publish it as a book and a set of postcards.
But that was only the beginning. Thanks to the huge response from the Kickstarter community the project got featured in Wired, Fast Company and many other important sites, reaching a massive audience and allowing me, not only to find the perfect publisher for the project, BIS Publishers, but also to kickstart my own design studio – Studio Carreras.
Today, Philographics is a reality that can be found in many bookstores worldwide and that has been published in English, Spanish, Dutch, French and Japanese. The art prints have been exhibited in New York, London, Paris and they occupy the walls of more than 10,000 homes, classrooms and offices around the world. We’re currently on the 4th run of the English edition and we have recently launched a new postcard book, a compilation of the 24 best designs as postcards.
All of this has been possible thanks to you, Kickstarter, and I will never be able to thank you enough. But at least I want to try it, so to do that I’m offering a new special edition art print that includes all the original Philographics, exclusive for Kickstarter Gold. The print will be limited edition, signed and numbered. I’m also offering the current Philographics book and new postcard book signed by me at no extra cost. Check out all the incredible rewards available:
So if you didn’t get the chance to contribute to the first Kickstarter campaign or if you did and you want to get another copy for a friend or yourself now is the chance!

Risks and challenges
BIS Publishers is taking care of shipping the books and postcard books, as they are stored in their warehouses. They sell and ship books everywhere in the world on a daily basis so fulfilment for this project should be a very smooth process even if there's a high volume of orders.
If the project gets funded I will fly to the warehouse in Amsterdam to sign each and every one of the books and postcard books that you order.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
