money makes the world go ‘round,

design makes it stop.

Take notice.




And buy.

Today, design is all around us. We’re immersed in it. It permeates our daily lives, influences our behavior and is defining the human experience as a strikingly visual one. Once the exclusive domain of skilled professionals, new tools, channels and software have emerged in the last decade to create opportunities for anyone to design, distribute and put their ideas on display. With Graphic Design: Now In Production, come explore design as it exists today in a state of constant re-imagination.

Graphic Design: Now in Production, featuring work produced since 2000, is a dynamic exploration of communication design in all its vitality. Come see this incredible showcase of design-driven magazines, newspapers, books and posters that inform and entertain. The proliferation of branding programs for companies, communities and individuals that shape our views. The entrepreneurial spirit of designer-produced products that re-assert style as part of the sale. The second coming of typography, thanks to digital media. The storytelling aspect of film and TV titles that pick up where the James Bond opening sequence left off. And the design of information itself, transforming dull data into compelling perspectives and narratives that enlighten our thinking and open our minds. Oct. 2 6, 2 013 Feb. 23, 2014. Only at SECCA.
