Blog Assignment #3

The person that i was assigned for our magazine project was Chip Kidd. He was a Graphic designer for many books covers, an editor, photographer, an author while also being interested in music writing and animation. He is very involved in different ways and i find that interesting that he takes on so many roles. He is best known for his book jackets though. One book jacket that would familiar to all of you is his Jurrasic Park cover. 



Books on Graphic Design

February 16, 2012

The book I have chosen from the library was The Story of Graphic Design zfrom the Invention of Writing to the Birth of Digital Design By Patrick Cramsie. The reason I chose this particular book was because it was clear to me it has never been opened before. Another reason was because the pictures shown in this book are some of the same images i see in my art history books from different time periods. Its interesting to see what was and what can be by looking at the past images people have designed. This book also shows the birth and creation of each element needed in design. Such as the birth of printing, publishing, “tools of the trade”, and styles used in the world today.

Graphics for Change

February 7, 2012

Kuwaiti graphic designer Mohammed Sharaf created to support Nasser Abdul a man who was detained for the posts he made on twitter.He allegedly critized the families that ruled Bahrain and Saudi Arabia.  The posts have been erased from twitter itself but are being investigated while he remains in prison. I find this protest interesting because things we say on our everyday social medias can really get us into trouble. “Several prominent writers and activists tweeted their support, not necessarily of Abdul’s apparently strong Shia extremism, but for his freedom to express his opinions of the ruling class without fear of arrest.”
