Fine Art vs. Graphic Design

I have been saying to anyone who will listen for years that the most arresting visual images are often to be found on billboards and on the advertising pages of glossy magazines, not in art galleries. Andrew Otwell has now pointed out this article in The Guardian: “From record covers to road signs, posters to packaging, graphics and typography touch every area of our lives. Forget fine art, Rick Poynor argues: it’s design that is at the core of 21st-century visual culture .” I told you so.
