From Aleksandr Rodchenko's 'Who We Are: Manifesto of the Constructivist Group' to Kenya Hara's 'Computer Technology and Design,' Graphic Design Theory presents primary texts from the most important historical and contemporary design thinkers. The book is organised into three sections: 'Creating the Field', 'Building on Success' and 'Mapping the Future', and includes colour images to illustrate each of the movements discussed and to demonstrate the relationship between theory and practice. A brief commentary prefaces each text, providing a cultural and historical framework through which work can be evaluated. Authors include influential designers such as Herbert Bayer, Laszlo Moholy-Nagy, Karl Gerstner, Katherine McCoy, Michael Rock, Lev Manovich, Ellen Lupton, and Lorraine Wild. A must-have survey for designers and students.
