Design Is History

Part of the graduate thesis of designer Dominic Flask, the Design is History site was created as a teaching tool for young designers just beginning to explore graphic design and as a reference tool for all designers.

As a designer it is important to understand where design came from, how it developed, and who shaped its evolution. The more exposure you have to past, current and future design trends, styles and designers, the larger your problem-solving toolkit. The larger your toolkit, the more effective of a designer you can be.

    FYI Since 1999 there has been a similar reference tool on the history of graphic design on the the web. It is a non-profit educational site written by an expert who has taught graphic design history for 20 years. Check it out for complete and accurate information in a specially designed student friendly format.
