"Hedonism" kind of offends me.  Gay people are hedonistic?  Not helpful.

Mad_Radhu: If you are doing graphic design, it is kind of your job to be familiar with any symbols that might be loaded with meaning and have some history behind them, especially a symbol like the pink triangle that has entered into the wider culture after its original creation by the Nazis.


This assumes that the symbols don't mean anything within the context of the diagram itself. Both "Deism" and "Free Will" have triangles in them. The "Free Will" triangles point randomly either upwards or downwards while "Deism" has a biconvex lens within a triangle pointing upwards.

So what is the meaning of triangle and why is it pink? I imagine a hedonist may be gay or might not be. I suggest it's possibly more of an anatopism than something meant as an insult.

So, is "minimalism" just another excuse for artists with no talent, like abstract art?

That keeps being brought up. It's definitely a bit of a wrong note there. On the other hand, what's a good simple symbol for hedonism?

/i disagree with most of the images tho, it seems to be more a portrait of the bias of the 'artist', the fact they felt the need to add all the words doesnt help either
