9781621535362: Graphic Design Rants and Raves: Bon Mots on Persuasion, Entertainment, Education, Culture, and Practice

Design is everywhere. Graphic design enters into everything. This is the scope of designer Steven Heller’s latest essay anthology that covers the spectrum of graphic design and related art and culture. Looking at design as practice, language, culture, and power, each of the forty-plus essays is a self-contained story. Heller pours out his ideas criticisms and celebrations on such topics as:

A history of our modern Hindu-Arabic numerals, and a look at the letter K
Brand design utilized by Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump early in the 2016 Presidential race
The tumultuous relationship between design and sex
The Charlie Hebdo massacre and the principles of free expression
Icons revisited, including Paul Rand (not to be confused with the politician Rand Paul), Ralph Ginzburg, Frank Zachary, George Lois, and Print magazine
Food packaging, the design of milk, and USPS stamps
The obsessive use of cuteness, and the sad and happy history of the ubiquitous happy face

From commercial advertising to government institutions to cultural revolution, from the objects that push design forward to those that seep into the everyday, Graphic Design Rants and Raves is an exploration of how visual design has arrived in the twenty-first century.
