A *New* Program For Graphic Design - David Reinfurt
Graphic design is everywhere, communicating with us constantly, a carrier of language in all of its forms - shouldn't it be part of our general education? Well David Reinfurt thinks so, and for the last few years the design curriculum he has developed at Princeton has been built on this proposition.
This excellent title is born from Reinfurt's *New* program, born in 2018, which aimed to condense a year's teaching into three days of six 45 minute lectures.
Divided into three chapters (Typography, Gestalt and Interface), this book delivers to us a 'broad and comprehensive introduction to graphic design and visual literacy for readers from any discipline'.
This really does feel like a *new* approach to the field of graphic design, an expansive one which attempts to provide us with a way to engage with and understand our world, escaping the limitations of the discipline as craft.
