With the Industrial Revolution came advances in printing and the new medium of photography, both of which shaped the design of books, magazines, posters, and newspapers. Beginning in the mid-19th century, the course will examine the significant historical events, modern art movements, designers, and technological advances which shaped the development of modern graphic design. The course will include readings and discussion about contemporary visual systems and the effects of the digital revolution in the field of design.
