Through the turbulent passage of time, graphic design—with its vivid, neat synthesis of image and idea—has distilled the spirit of each age.

Surrounding us every minute of every day, from minimalist packaging to colorful adverts, smart environmental graphics to sleek interfaces: graphic design is as much about transmitting information as it is about reflecting society’s cultural aspirations and values.With his sweeping knowledge of the field, author Jens Müller curates the standout designs for each year, a running sequence of design milestones.

This collection of important graphic works represents a long-overdue reflection on the development of a creative field constantly changing and challenging itself.

These key pieces act as coordinates through contemporary history, helping us trace the sheer influence of graphic design on our daily lives.
