The first chapter of the non-fiction book Layout: the design of the printed page by Allen Hurlburt discusses historical influences on modern design. The chapter cites the main influences of modern design (modern as in the “modernist” art movement, not current design) Art Nouveau, Cubism, Futurism, Dadaism, Surrealism, Constructivism, Art Deco, De Stijl and Bauhaus.
This past weekend I worked a bunch on the Wishers and Dreamers website and published the new site! Check it out: www.wishersanddreamers.com. I made the site very simple compared to the previous one. I am still working on the logo for Wishers and Dreamers and the mobile version of the site. The website was already set up using the godaddy.com website builder (which has a super annoying interface and was a pain to use! I like the WordPress website builder interface so much better).
