A New History, Third Edition

A classic and indispensable account of graphic design history from the Industrial Revolution to the present Now in its third edition, this acclaimed survey explores the evolution of graphic design from the 19th century to the present day. Following an exploration of design's prehistory in ancient civilizations through the Industrial Revolution, author Stephen J. Eskilson argues that modern design as we know it grew out of the influence of Victorian-age reformers. He traces the emergence of modernist design styles in the early 20th century, examining the wartime politicization of regional styles. Richly contextualized chapters chronicle the history of the Bauhaus and the rise of the International Style in the 1950s and '60s, and the postmodern movement of the 1970s and '80s. Contemporary considerations bring the third edition up to date, with discussions of app design, social media, emojis, big data visualization, and the use of animated graphics in film and television. The contemporary phenomenon of the citizen designer, professionals who address societal issues either through or in addition to their commercial work, is also addressed, highlighting protagonists like Bruce Mau and the Center for Urban Pedagogy. This edition also features 45 additional images, an expanded introduction and epilogue, and revised text throughout. A newly redesigned interior reinforces the fresh contents of this now-classic volume.

Gutes Grafikdesign basiert neben eigenen Ideen und Kreativität auf Schlüsselelementen, die durchaus erlernt und trainiert werden können. Hierfür analysieren Steven Heller und Gail Anderson herausragende Arbeiten der weltweit renommiertesten Gestalter mit: Von Michael Bierut, Jan Tschichold, Anton Stankowski, Neville Brody und Jessica Hische über Fons Hickmann, Paul Rand und Stefan Sagmeister bis hin zu Seymour Chwast, Otl Aicher, Paul Sahre und Christopher Niemann – erstklassige Projekte von fünfzig Kreativen werden hinsichtlich Kreativität und Techniken beleuchtet. Wie lassen sich Informationen klarer visualisieren? Wie können Lösungen emotional aufgeladen werden? Schließlich bringen die Autoren Handwerk und Konzeption zusammen, erklären, wie sich die Form auf unterschiedliche Art und Weise um den Content schmiegen kann – humorvoll, typografisch oder aber mit dem Spiel von Perspektiven. Last, but not least widmet sich ein ausführliches Kapitel dem Storytelling. Ein umfassendes Arbeitsbuch also, das gerade Newcomer bestens durch ihre Ausbildung begleiten wird.

In this book, Ellen Mazur Thomson examines for the first time the early development of the graphic design profession. It has been thought that graphic design emerged as a profession only when European modernism arrived in America in the 1930s, yet Thomson shows that the practice of graphic design began much earlier. Shortly after the Civil War, when the mechanization of printing and reproduction technology transformed mass communication, new design practices emerged. Thomson investigates the development of these practices from 1870 to 1920, a time when designers came to recognize common interests and create for themselves a professional identity. What did the earliest designers do, and how did they learn to do it? What did they call themselves? How did they organize themselves and their work? Drawing on an array of original period documents, the author explores design activities in the printing, typefounding, advertising, and publishing industries. She considers the role of labor unions, advertising agencies, schools of art and design, and professional associations; the writings and ideas of Henry Lewis Johnson and William Addison Dwiggins; and the impact of the values of the Aesthetic Movement and the Arts and Crafts Movement.

new systems in graphic design

The multilayered, fragmented, postmodern style of graphic design revolutionized by desk-top computing has run its course. Anything that could be tried has been tried. Graphic design today has entered a new period, one of greater experimentation that often takes place outside the commercial realm and forces us to reconsider what we have taken as a given. What has emerged is a radical body of work that is rapidly redefining the very nature and scope of design. As presented in this dynamic international showcase of the world's hottest thirty-seven studios, three sensibilities characterize this avant-garde: "Code," "Generic," and "Disjunction." "Code" looks at the innovative ways designers, tired of using the computer as a tool with applications that are analogues to conventional media, are becoming programmers, unleashing the computer's processing powers to discover new worlds of extreme beauty. Designers in "Generic" confront the ordinary to offer us an offbeat system of signs, symbols, andmeanings that are still strangely familiar. Finally, "Disjunction" considers work that appropriates anything to advance its own, often self-interested aims, whether they be political, social, aesthetic, or even personal. All of these approaches respond in their different ways to the problems facing the graphic designer, and while none endeavors to set out a single systematic solution for design, many suggest unexpected and entirely original ways to communicate images and words. In the ever-shifting realm of contemporary culture, "Restart offers a new grid. With over 600 illustrations in color and black and white.
