More on Hegemony

My thoughts on the massive expanding super ego that we call Graphic Design seems to have provoked at least a little interest outside of the 'gland, not least I suspect because I rashly connected the work of smart folks like Made Media and 3form with the broader notion that the industry's conversion to the church of Jakob Nielsen won't save it from its obsession with surface and the dominance of the visual. Well it was a spurious connection, prompted merely by the coincidence of graphic design student assessments and the Plus+ Design show; in hindsight these should perhaps have been two separate blog entries, but such is the immediacy of the medium and its ability to capture the flow of one's thoughts, however disorganised. Ah well, mea culpa.
