Welcome to Graphic Design History at Northwest College. In these pages we examine the artistic, social, and technological influences on graphic design from the Industrial Revolution to the present.
I’ve collected many excellent links and resources for you to bookmark. This information only skims the surface of design history — there is so much more than one can fit into a single website. For more in-depth information I highly recommend books by Philip Meggs’ History of Graphic Design and any of Steven Heller’s many books on graphic design.
Thank you for visiting. Enjoy.
