Presenting a significant selection of seventy-eight essays, interviews, and symposia from the pioneering AIGA Journal of Graphic Design, Design Culture examines the coming of age of graphic design as a profession and its role in shaping our culture. A diverse group of leading designers, editors, academics, and professionals both within and outside the field offer stimulating views on the impact of graphic design on everyday life.
