Infographic on How Graphic Design has Changed Over Time
Have you ever wondered how graphic designs have evolved through time? Before that, what is graphic design, exactly? Graphic design shows a way of communicating which involves styles that efficiently use spaces, images, and typefaces, aimed at achieving the message pointed at a target audience.
To utilize designs, most of the time, graphic designers are known to create with the use of words, various images and symbols to produce a visual representation of combined ideas and messages.
Keeping the same visual representation in mind, Pop Chart Lab, a website that has mastered the infographics trend and has aimed to render charts of all human experiences, has created a chart titled, “A Stylistic Survey of Graphic Design”, that shows the progressive nature of graphic design starting from the Victorian era towards our more modern digital age.
Highlighting close to 200 years of graphic design history, the chart is a hand-illustrated, two-toned diagram that shows different trends over the years such as Art Nouveau, Modern, Late Modern, Postmodern, Art Deco, and Digital, to name a few. It comes signed and numbered by the artists, on an 18” by 24” 100 lb. archival recycled stock, certified by The Forest Stewardship Council, pressed on an offset lithography press with vegetable-based inks.
Fetching for a pre-order price of US$23, or for a regular price of US$29, the chart can be obtained from the Pop Chart Lab website; an amazing collector’s chart for design aficionados.
