Wikipedia:WikiProject Graphic design

Purpose edit

This Wikiproject aims to create a more complete understanding of the breadth of the discipline by explaining the role of Graphic design in different contexts, and by drawing connections between Graphic design and its many related disciplines, areas of interest, and specializations.

Scope edit

One route to achieving a more complete understanding of Graphic design is to frame it in a variety of contexts:

  • The history of Graphic design
  • The business of Graphic design
  • Professional accreditation in Graphic design
  • The science of visual communication (semiotics, perception)
  • The Political impact of Graphic design (i.e. poster design and war propaganda)
  • Design movements (Arts and Crafts, Scandinavian modern, etc.)
  • Design education
