3x3 Named One of 100 Classic Design Journals

We just received a copy of Steven Heller and Jason Godfrey’s new book, 100 Classic Graphic Design Journals. This is quite the honor when you realize how many great design journals you’re in the company with.

100 Classic Graphic Design Journals surveys a unique collection of the most influential magazines devoted to graphic design, advertising and typography. These journals together span over 100 years of the history of print design and chart the rise of graphic design from a necessary sideline to the printing industry to an autonomous creative profession.

Each magazine is generously illustrated with a large selection of spreads and covers. A descriptive text based, where possible, on interviews with editors, designers, and publishers is also included for each magazine alongside comprehensively researched bibliographic material. The magazines featured cover a range of industries and eras, from advertising (Publimondial, La Pubblicità Italiana), posters (Das Plakat, Affiche), and typography (Typografische Monatsblätter, Typographica), to Art Nouveau (Bradley, His Book), Modernist design (Neue Grafik, ULM) and Post-Modern and contemporary graphics (Emigre, It's Nice That). Some of these journals only lasted one year while others still exist. These 100 journals offer an invaluable resource to historians and students of graphic design, and a rich seam of visual research and inspiration for graphic designers.

We got two spots on the front cover, Number 9 by Ward Schumaker and Number 6 by Olaf Hajek and inside we have two pages and a wonderful blurb by Heller, “3x3's covers follow in the Graphis tradition of using a strong central illustration with no cover lines and accompanied only by a logo.”
