In his autobiography, Meggs wrote, “I remember hearing somewhere that you can’t have a successful design without including all the senses in some way. To me, this is true. That’s why I started creating my own fonts. As I was experimenting, I was constantly thinking about how the font would look when used in various applications and with various colors.”
It’s no secret that graphic design is a hugely important and influential part of today’s society. It has a huge impact on both the design industry itself and on the world at large.

When graphic design first emerged in the mid-1800s, it was a new form of art that was primarily focused on the creation and display of images. However, as technology evolved and printing became more popularized, this new artistic medium began to take on other roles, including advertising, publications, and more.
And while the history of graphic design is a long one, much of what we know today has been influenced by the people who helped shape and further develop it over time. In fact, many of these individuals contributed some incredible work that still inspires designers today.
About The Author For Meggs’ History of Graphic Design Epub
Philip B. Meggs charted new territory in the field of graphic design history. His authoritative survey A History of Graphic Design was the first attempt at creating a definitive and linear history of the graphic design profession, charting its progress from the marks found in the caves of Lascaux to experimentation with digital media in the late 1990s. The book quickly became standard reading for young designers and for many still, it provides their first introduction to the exciting back-story of their chosen profession.
