Design history for the masses

Looks like this site has been all over the blogosphere the past couple weeks. Design is History is a project from designer Dominic Flask as part of his graduate thesis in design at Fort Hays State University. While most of the material is from Wikipedia, it still provides a nice hub of design history from cave paintings to Bierut. Flask plans on continually adding information to the site (and surely he will now that everyone’s watching him), so we’ll see if the plan stays at covering a lot of information at surface level or if he dives in a bit deeper. Regardless, it’s a great spot to point folks who say, “oh you do design? Like advertising?”
