Graphic Design in the Post-Digital Age
Onomatopee 215 is the result of the research project Post Digital Graphic Design (2019–2021), directed by Demian Conrad at HEAD–Genève, and supported by a grant from the HES-SO strategic fund.
Graphic Design in the Post-Digital Age examines the challenges and opportunities in the wake of the rapid rise of creative coding within a growing community of designers opting to make their own design tools. This comprehensive overview covers educational approaches in design programs and the historic and economic contexts of programming in graphic design, as well as the implications surrounding the integration of coding with design. The book includes over twenty interviews in which major figures in design reflect upon the ways in which coding has innovated and transformed their design practice and strategies, and the directions it will take in the future.
