Reason #3

“ The designer winds the spring, the viewers eye is caught, the spring is released.”

Web Design Mock-up

Simplification and reduction of the modern poster design, turning naturalism into a visual language. Using flat color shapes, the product name, and product image, repeated over and over. The graphic designers were artists using cubism futurism and the invigorating principles of modern art aimed at expressiveness through simplification, distortion, transposition. Graphic communication is taken to a two way conversation as A. M. Cassandre uses a visual pun where the spectator is forced to participate. And finally with Games’ philosophy on design, analyzing the effectiveness of the message impressing upon the subconscious. “ The designer winds the spring, the viewers eye is caught, the spring is released.”

Reason #2

The evolution of the modern poster is the second reason. The total integration of illustration, format and typography. unmodulated color, stylized curvilinear drawing, shapes become symbols and these signify a place and event. The unity of type and image. Type became a design element, integrated with flat shape, stylized contour and the silhouette to communicate a harmony of presentation. The central figure in gesture, swirls of color, formal composition and thick black contour drawing. Landscape and interiors presented as suggestive impressions not detailed depiction.

Saturday 15 September 1984


Well we’ve been underway for 3 weeks now. It seems like a lot longer than that. It will be a nice break to be in the Philippine Islands for 3 weeks! I am going to enjoy it a lot.
Last Monday we had what they call a Captains call. The Captain comes down to the mess deck & assembles each department one at a time and listens to each persons gripes and complaints. Then he lets us know our scheduled ops for the next month. Which is.. I can’t tell you, that is classified information.
The only thing that is certain about the next 6 months is that we will be somewhere in the South Pacific. We will not be going to Japan. I am devastated!

Reason #1

Oil Painting

Photography changed everything, from the way graphics and type were applied, to the visual appearance of the printed page. The awful realities of the civil war were brought graphically to the masses and thus may have changed history. It has been invaluable as a historical record and also used in the photographic interview. It became a documentary and communications tool in the exploration of the American west. Eadweard Muybriges’ battery of cameras captured movement in time and space and led the development of motion-picture photography.
