Don’t Shoot the Messenger
The Expanding Field of Graphic Design, Design Museum Helsinki, Finland
The current challenges of critical design, the birth and death of media, the changing concept of work, and changes in the tools and technologies of design, are considered here from the perspectives of Finnish and international graphic designers. Graphic designers are the messengers, whose role is constantly reshaping as the field of graphic design goes through expansion, along with the other art forms of today. This exhibition ponders the current situation, aiming to determine just where the profession is going, by outlining the work of domestic and international designers. The curator is the Design Museum’s own Suvi Saloniemi.
