Graphic design history is a territory where multiple interests converge but where views may diverge, especially those of design practitioners and historians. How do historical narratives shape the definition of the field practice? Conversely, how does graphic design practice contribute, or how can it contribute, to defining the ways to access and disseminate historical knowledge? How does history help to develop critical discourse about design practice? How do designers use and embed history in their practice? Finally, are the visions and agendas of practictioners and academic historians really so incompatible and distant from one another? Graphic Design History and Practice attempts to answer those questions through the voices of both designers amd historians who have been extensively involved in with the making of design history.
