Italian graphic design has had a lasting influence on the American visual and cultural landscape. From Fortunato Depero’s move to New York City in 1928 to Unimark International’s corporate identity work of the 1960’s and 70’s, Italian graphic designers were living and publishing important work in the U.S in the last century.
The selection includes designers who worked for American clients while living in Italy and others who created new lives by moving to America. Whether they succeeded right away or suffered hardships, their personal and professional experiences shed light not only on graphic design, but also identity, politics, migration, historiography and the journey of the human spirit.
A panel with the contributors of the catalogue will be held at Cooper Union on April 3, 2019.
