Book Description

11 Mar 2013 Mini
The last thirty-five years have seen profound upheavals in the field of graphic communication. One by one, the old certainties about the techniques and purposes of graphic design have been questioned and torn apart. Jettisoning rules that no longer seemed relevant in the postmodern era, designers and typographers have reassessed their roles and forged experimental new approaches. No More Rules is the first wide-ranging critical survey to attempt to make sense of these international developments. No More Rules tells this story in detail, breaking down a broad and sometimes confusing field of graphic design activity into key developments and themes, such as the American new wave; punk and its aftermath; deconstructionist theory and design; the digital type revolution; typography grunge; graphic authorship and graphic agitation; retro and the vernacular; and recent new conceptual approaches to design. Each of the books key themes origins, deconstruction, appropriation, technology, authorship and opposition is illuminated by stunning examples of work that has changed the way in which designers and their audiences think about graphic communication.

Product Description

Review

No individual has worked harder at improving the perception and understanding of graphic design than Rick Poynor. ...Poynor eases us through the theoretical forest with lucid prose and his profound knowledge of the history of graphic design. ... His book is an intensely readable appraisal of how postmodern thought and practice has moulded graphic design and brought about the rupture that has resulted in their being two graphic designs. The book is admirably designed by Kerr Nobel. -- Creative Review

The latest effort from design guru Mr Poynor is as studious as you'd expect... There are no half-measures with this book-as you'd expect from a critical analysis, it's the words that are the really important thing here. -- Grafik --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

4.0 out of 5 stars A broad review of Postmodernism in Graphic Design 19 July 2013
By T. Carpenter - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Rick Poynor gives an excellent account of the origins of and varied expressions of Postmodernism in Graphic Design. This book is a valuable starting point for investigating self expression in graphic design and how art history and literary theory informed designers to break free from the dogma of late Modernism and corporate graphic design.
