Design is History?

As a designer it is important to understand where design came from, how it developed, and who shaped its evolution. The more exposure you have to past, current and future design trends, styles and designers, the larger your problem-solving toolkit. The larger your toolkit, the more effective of a designer you can be.

Unfortunately, this site is no longer maintained and serves only as an archive of my own personal studies of the history of graphic design. I built this site as an educational tool and have used it to teach students about the History of Graphic Design. Images are attributed where sources could be found.
