Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

As twenty-first-century design concerns seem to center increasingly on the depiction as well as the use of technology, this new graphic design book, copiously illustrated and thoughtfully written, provides a comprehensive overview of modernism as applied to American graphics and a look at the explosion of creativity ushered in via digital design.

No more rules screams the title in a font reminiscent of De Stijl-ist Germanic modernism as design critic Poynor explains the changes in graphic work both before and after new electronic technologies took hold in the 1990s, with emphasis on the unleashing of creative energies occasioned by computer-assisted design. The last two decades of the twentieth century saw many of the old, tried, and true rules of graphic design abandoned as the idiosyncratic and self-expressive took precedence. Poynor, who founded Eye, an international design journal, provides good overviews of graphics development and issues in the electronic age, including the digital revolution's impact on "fontography" and discussion of appropriation, the visual equivalent of musical sampling.

Rick Poynor gives an excellent account of the origins of and varied expressions of Postmodernism in Graphic Design. This book is a valuable starting point for investigating self expression in graphic design and how art history and literary theory informed designers to break free from the dogma of late Modernism and corporate graphic design.

This is literally one of the only books published about Postmodern graphic design. It's comprehensive in scope, history and context. If you're looking for a book about Postmodern graphic design, you won't find anything better than this.

Not a bad book for a graphic design book but not too much interest to me. A required book for my college-age son's graphic design class.

I purchased it for a college course and it served its purpose. It's a decent little book for a decent price.
