Message Journal, Edition 3: What is the topography of the contemporary graphic design / communication landscape in relation to art practice? What occupies the space between disciplines?
MetadataShow full item record
In Message journal edition 3 the refereed submissions explore further the boundaries between contemporary graphic design/communication and art, as well as examining what is occupied within the space between the disciplines.
Authors, through written and illustrated submissions, question and investigate the broad nature of graphic design and communication practice and its relationship to art, in relation to both historical and contemporary contexts. The edition debates and illustrates how graphic design/communication can be seen as imaginative, intuitive and creative self (or group) expression – a form of artistic composition – in the same way that we recognise much of art practice. The edition examines practice outside of the conventional boundaries of contemporary graphic design/communication and considers how this space is occupied.
