The History of Graphic Design: Vol. 2, 1960-Today
This second volume rounds off the most comprehensive exploration of graphic design to date, spanning from the 1960s until today. About 2,500 seminal designs from across the globe guide us in this visual map through contemporary history, from the establishment of the International Style to the rise of the groundbreaking digital age. Around 130 key pieces go under the microscope in detailed analyses besides 120 biographies of the era's most important designers, including Massimo Vignelli (New York subway wayfinding system), Otl Aicher (Lufthansa identity), Yusaku Kamekura (Nikon poster campaign), Paula Scher (Citibank brand identity), Neville Brody (The Face magazine), and Stefan Sagmeister (handwriting posters).
