Re: Afterword to ‘Googling the design canon’ – don’t diss the digital

The Táin demonstrates how design can contribute to a nation’s sense of itself
Graphic design heroes might be, as Martha Scotford noted, Western white men, but they’re a particular kind of Western, white, man: there are few Finns, Greeks or Irish in the canon. As a 1992 article in Graphis asked: ‘Where are the Paul O’Rands, the Milton McGlasers?’
