design in a nutshell image

Open University has a neat little collection of animated videos that sum up six of the most important movements in the history of design:

  • Gothic Revival
  • Arts and Crafts
  • Bauhaus
  • Modernism
  • American Industrial Design
  • Postmodernism

“You live by the mantra ‘Function dictates form’, and believe your ample talents can design a better society. You are the celebration of mankind’s creativity! And modest too.”
