Abstract

This is a documentation of the research, design methods, and production of “An Abridged Visual History of Graphic Design.” First the documentation explains the choice to create an illustrated design history book. Then, it describes the research methods and findings of the process, as well as a detailed description of the design decisions made for each graphic movement covered. It provides in-progress illustrations and covers the production methods for the two final books.
