The Politics of Design


The Politics of Design
€ 17,-

Typography, colour preferences, photography, symbols and information graphics are essentially the products of specific political and social contexts. And that’s what the Politics of Design examines. In other words, it’s about the different cultural fabrics of human interaction which
produce the ideas, shapes and colors of design activities. By showing how design is attached to politics and societies of different world regions, the book aptly demonstrates why we grow to be culturally biased, and occasionally fail to communicate with each other despite our belief in the
universality of our aesthetics. Organised according to the formal elements of graphic design: language and typography, colour and contrast, image and photography, symbols and icons, and information graphics, it’s is an ideal manual for the enthusiast of visual culture.
