A History of Graphic Design

Art Nouveau

1890s – early 20th century

During the 1800s, Art Nouveau was established as a movement that covered architecture, fashion, furniture, graphic and product design. The graphic design styles that emerged from this movement are highly influenced from the Japanese art form of ukiyo-e. Rather than copy and paste from the Japanese art style, the Art Nouveau artists became inspired by their abstract style of design and made their own unique graphics.
