Design Literacy: Understanding Graphic Design (3rd Edition) by Steven Heller
English | 2014 | ISBN: 1621534049 | 304 pages | EPUB | 5 MB
Author and design expert Steven Heller has revisited and revised the popular classic Design Literacy by revising many of the thoughtful essays from the original and mixing in thirty-two new works. Each essay offers a taste of the aesthetic, political, historical, and personal issues that have engaged designers from the late nineteenth century to the presentâ€”from the ubiquitous (the swastika, antiwar posters) to the whimsical (MAD magazine parodies). The essays are organized into eight thematic categoriesâ€”persuasion, mass media, language, identity, information, iconography, style, and commerce.
