Graphic styles through history
Similar to fine arts, graphic design styles through history can be classified in moven1ents. Each defined style has its own set of characteristics, from illustration and typographical techniques, to organizational approaches and design goals. Trends gradually moved from the organic, detailed illustrations of Art Nouveau to the stark, rudimentary style of De Stijl, and then to a mix of practicality and unconventional in Post Modem design. These graphic styles are a reflection of art, culture, and society during their respective time periods. I selected five styles (Art Nouveau, De Stijl, Art Deco, Swiss International, and Post Modern) and researched the design characteristics for each. I then created my own posters -one for each style -using those techniques and recorded my design process.
