  • I wrote about the his­tory of graphic design at col­lege in my ear­lier days, con­sist­ing of:

    1. Indus­trial Rev­o­lu­tion
    2. Art & Crafts-William Mor­ris
    3. Art Nou­veau
    4. Expres­sion­ism
    5. Modernism-Futurism
    6. Modernism-Bauhaus
    7. Art Deco
    8. Dadaism
    9. Real­ism
    10. Late Modernism-60’s Psy­che­delia
    11. Neville Brody
