Search vs. Discovery

A simpler and more abstract illustration for this time! Feels like a bowl of fresh air, and I'm very happy with the end result. Search and Discovery are two similar and overlapping concepts, and yet subtly distinct. As I couldn't explain the difference within a single frame, I went for the real objects metaphor. One could use the compass and the magnifying glass to both search or discover things, and the same applies to digital Search, at least if you implement it that way.
