“Does it Make Sense?” April Greiman’s Iconic Graphic Design Poster at 35

In 1986, April Greiman used an early Macintosh computer and the programs MacDraw, MacPaint and MacVision to create Design Quarterly issue #133. Instead of the typical 32-page publication, she created a 6-foot poster that folded to the dimensions of the journal. This pioneering example of digital design is reprinted in every history of graphic design textbook but has to be reduced to the point that it’s unreadable.

An original edition of “Does it Make Sense?”, on loan from the University of Georgia Libraries, will be on view with a contextualizing display by students from the Grady College of Journalism & Mass Communication.
