The History of the International Style Movement as Told by FIDM Graphic Design Student Richard Noguchi

When studying the history of graphic design, students earning their degree in Graphic Design at FIDM/Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising discover how famous design movements reflect social and cultural attitudes over time.

Charged with the task to compile a report on International Style in his History of Design course taught by Graphic Design Instructor Alex Gardos, Richard Noguchi states, “Knowing design movements and how they shape the designs trending today is an important factor to be cognizant of. It provides insight to your design methods and why it may be applicable to your creative concept. With each movement there is some sort of relevancy behind it and it is fascinating to envisage how it was able to transcend over time to make a continuous effect on future designs and their designers.”

For those who do not know, the International Style is a major architectural style that emerged in the 1920s and 1930s. This particular report brings to light the philosophies of the movement as well as the ramification it has on the designs of today. Scroll down to read Noguchi’s full report.
