Digital Design Theory

Digital Design Theory: Readings from the Field is a a new title from PA Press, edited by Helen Armstrong, with a foreword by Keetra Dean Dixon. It tracks the development of digital design, ushered in by the advent of personal computing. Divided chronologically, Helen Armstrong introduces key texts from the ’60s & ’70s, the ’80s & ’90s, and 2000 through to the present, from influential designers and programmers, including Ladislav Sutnar, Bruno Munari, Sol LeWitt, Muriel Cooper, Paola Antonelli, Keetra Dean Dixon and John Maeda. Of course the Digital Design Theory boasts top notch design & layout, with excellent typography, and a lovely color palette. There is a slightly minimal approach to visual examples, but the ones it does contain have a lot of impact and are well-curated. Learn more about it on the Digital Design Theory website.
