I noticed while working on an assignment for class that there are not any legible timelines for Graphic Design available on the web, so I decided to post my final piece of work on the site. My teacher called for the timeline to be from 3600 BC up until the seventeenth century, so nothing modern is dated. I included the social, historical, and political movements around the time these innovations were happening, so the notable things regarding graphic design are marked in red.
I know that this is something common for graphic design schools to do, so for the integrity of my work, I have watermarked this. This is an exported PDF, it is high quality, and printable (legibly) on 11 x 17 paper. The information is taken straight from Megg’s History of Graphic Design, this is meant to be used as a reference.
