The history of graphic design

A Stylistic Survey of Graphic Design by Brooklyn’s Pop Chart Lab

 

Each era is represented by a rectangular box that includes several squares that graphically represent the style described.

 

The Modern movement, one of the largest movements depicted here, includes Bauhaus, Vorticism, De Stijl, New Typography and Istotope, Constructivism, Suprematicsm, and Futurism. Pop Chart creates, within each stamp-sized box, a visual representation of that particular style, with the design elements that prevailed at the time. So the Constructivism box echoes the intense Soviet Party posters from the 1920s, the Futurism box has a bold, attention-grabbing arrow on it, and so on.
