ART 345 - History of Design


This course offers a history of modern design, with an emphasis on the development and significance of Graphic Design. Each week, a different historical period or themes is explored and the relationships between graphic design and a larger design culture are stressed. Key themes include technological advances since the industrial revolution, the birth of mass communications and imagistic reproducibility, the development of a consumer culture and its critique, as well as the impact of modernist theories of art and design. Finally, the course explores the emergence of a so-called Postmodern design and theory, and contemporary developments such as digital technologies.
