Graphic Design: Now in Production is a temporary exhibition hosted by UCLA’s Armand Hammer Museum from September 29, 2012 through January 6, 2013.

Organized by the Walker Art Center and the Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum, this exhibition demonstrates how graphic design has broadened its reach since 2000, expanding from a specialized profession (typesetting, printmaking, etc.) to a widely used tool for everyone (via consumer access to computer software). It also explores how print design-driven mediums, such as magazines, newspapers, books, posters, and corporate branding, have crossed-over to interactive media, film and television.

As a graphic design professional, I was excited to take my family to what the Hammer boasts as “the largest museum exhibition on the subject since the Walker’s seminal 1989 exhibition Graphic Design in America: A Visual Language History, and the Cooper-Hewitt’s 1996 comprehensive survey, Mixing Messages: Graphic Design in Contemporary Culture.” It helped me explain to them what I do during my work day through abstract and real world displays of my profession.
