What interested me the most from last week’s lecture was the revolution of the Magazine cover of Harper’s Bazaar. We can see that the distinctive style of graphic design at different period of time, such as during Victorian era, when the first issue of Bazar appeared, the use the decorative borders, ornate typefaces, and the use of Symmetry was also used heavily in layout and design.
During art novae, the use of a long, sinuous, organic, swirling lines and the undulating asymmetrical line was employed.
Graphic design is heavenly influence by the social political economic changes at that point of time. For example, during the Art and Craftes movement, a time of strong moral and religious beliefs, proper social conventions, and optimism. The illustrators helped promote the idea of the athletic girl as fashionable and socially acceptable.
