LA – Design History (week 3 part 2)

The second learning activity was to explore the history timeline of Graphic Design and gather information from 1900 – 2000. Then design own timeline using the Swiss Design Style. It seems that first I always like to go deeper to what I have learned and try it out so that I see that I have understood the style and assignment and then I probably should do the assignment again to have my own style and preferences shown more. This timeline is sure Swiss style (asymmetry, strong use of grid system, sans-serif fonts), it does have my perspective as well to the design but I’m eigher to try the swiss style more and explore the limits and opportunities about it more in the future.

Also each movement was supposed to be described in a creative way which could be understood in many ways. I started to look different typefaces from the era of the styles but it started to look so messy that I looked clarifications for this part of the assignment. It seemed that the creative way was to describe the style in a creative way. So I wrote few word of each style and it got positive feedback from the forum and tutor.

Here’s my history timeline of Graphic Design in Swiss Style.
