Design literacy : understanding graphic design by Steven Heller( Book )

28 editions published between 1977 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,299 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although created to fulfill ephemeral needs, great works of graphic design often become memorable cultural icons representing the times and places of their origins. Design Literacy presents ninety-three "object lessons," specific histories examining the contexts in which well-known, unknown, and anonymous works have made decisive contributions to the evolution of graphic design. Steven Heller and Karen Pomeroy create a mosaic of design stories that offer a series of valuable lessons in how design works and an engaging history of graphic design from the late nineteenth century to the present. Tracing the development of each work, Heller and Pomeroy explain its role in design history and how it relates to the cultural milieu from which it emerged. Design Literacy is a quick remedy for designers and students of design suffering from a diet of too much "eye candy" and hungry to understand the forces at work behind the visual power of great works of graphic design

Paul Rand by Steven Heller( Book )

27 editions published between 1998 and 2014 in English and German and held by 899 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Paul Rand (1914-96) was a pioneering figure in American graphic design. Adopting what he called a 'problem solving' approach to design, he drew on the ideas of European avant-garde art movements, such as Cubism, Constructivism and De Stijl, and synthesized them to produce his own distinctive graphic language." "Rand's career spanned almost seven decades and numerous chapters of design history. His own books are solidly thematic, whereas this definitive collection of his key published and proposed works is medium-driven. It explores the full range of his advertising, publishing and corporate identity work." "This detailed survey marks the first complete retrospective of Rand's powerful body of work."--Jacket

"Red Scared! offers valuable lessons from the vault on how to identify Communists, media reports on the jolly side of Stalin, guidelines for bomb shelter chic, and much more. As they did in their other lively pop-culture histories, Teenage Confidential and Wedding Bell Blues, Michael Barson and Steven Heller once again bring the nearly forgotten details of American culture into full relief with Red Scared!"--Jacket
