  1. really people. This is not a proper venn diagram. what does yellow stand for? maybe both circles should be blue, and the intersection could still be red. It would look less interesting, but it would be right.

  2. @Jesus People, thanks for the feedback. Maybe you could clarify why you think this isn’t a proper venn diagram…?

    Venn diagrams show relations between sets of information. The ‘universe’ of literring and the ‘universe’ of smoking the reefer are two unique sets — highlighting their uniqueness through color is a design communication tool. Then highlighting the overlap of these sets — the ‘universe’ of both littering AND smoking the reefer — with yet another distinct color is again a design decision conceived to communicate uniqueness. I hope this helps clarify for you.
