A Stylistic Survey of Graphic Design

This beautiful hand-illustrated poster from Pop Chart Lab documents the history of Graphic Design from the Victorian era into the modern digital age. Each key style of graphic expression is represented by its respective design elements, sorted into movements tracing back nearly 200 years.

In the words of Pop Chart Lab – ‘From the finials and fronds of Art Nouveau through the Weimar utility of the Bauhaus to the taxonomical, sense-making project of Data Visualization, this survey of stylistics is a paean to patterns of composition, and an amazing contextual tool for design-lovers.’ And very lovely it is too!
