PBS Arts: Off Book — The Universal Arts of Graphic Design

“The Universal Arts of Graphic Design” by PBS Arts: Off Book takes a look at the many ways graphic design plays a role in everyday life, from book covers to subway signs.

Though often overlooked, Graphic Design surrounds us: it is the signs we read, the products we buy, and the rooms we inhabit. Graphic designers find beauty within limitations, working towards the ultimate goal of visually communicating a message, be it the packaging of a product, the spirit of a book, or the narrative of a building. Utilizing a language of type and imagery, graphic designers try to make every aspect of our lives defined and beautiful.
