An array of aesthetic advancement, this rigorously researched and hand-illustrated diagram documents the progression of Graphic Design from the Victorian era into the modern digital age.
Graphic design can’t be observed without thinking of other design styles, and this is how the hand-illustrated design poster by Pop Chart Lab is a kind of overview of the époques including the embossing styles of the past decades. In chronologic order and subdivided in different époques, “A Stylistic Survey of Graphic Design” offers a summary of graphic design from 1820 until today, beautifully displayed with name and typical stylistic elements of each époque.
The poster includes it all - from the finials and fronds of Art Nouveau to the Weimar utility of the Bauhaus to the taxonomical, sense-making project of Data Visualization, this survey of stylistics is a paean to patterns of composition, and an amazing contextual tool for design-lovers.
Pop Chart Lab produces the graphic out of 271 g/qm paper in archive quality, which is FSC-certified, of course. The poster is printed in an Offset-procedure with vegetable ink and it is delivered in a gift box. All the working steps take place in Brooklyn at Pop Chart Lab and each specimen is limited to 1000 pieces, numbered and signed by hand by the designer.
