The evolution of graphic design has never stopped; there has been vast progression dating back to nearly 200 years ago. Pop Chart Labs decided to map out the progression on this clever poster.

The poster boasts the aesthetic advancement from the Victorian era to the modern digital age and everything in-between. Each memorable style is showcased in a black and white within a square component. Some examples of the graphics featured on the poster are from the finials and fronds of Art Nouveau, the Weimar utility of the Bauhaus and the taxonomical Data Visualization graphics.

This chart can serve as the perfect tool for designers in need of inspiration or reference, as it features so many different styles, compositions and patterns.
