Drip-dry Shirts: The Evolution of the Graphic Designer

Couverture
AVA Publishing, 2005 - 191 pages
Before the Second World War, the term graphic design didn't even exist. Lucienne Roberts' Drip-dry Shirts- The Evolution of the Graphic Designer celebrates the work of those practitioners who created this now familiar term. Including work from and interviews with some of graphic design's biggest names - Ken Garland, Wim Crouwel, Milton Glaser, Karl Gerstner, Rosmarie Tissi and Ivan Chermayeff - this book gives an understanding of design history and sets contemporary work in an expansive and broad landscape. Contributors place their work in historical and personal contexts, reflecting on their formative years and long careers. Rich in anecdotes and observations, as influential designers speak honestly about what it was like to make design history, this is detailed visual retelling of the history of graphic design and its pioneers.
