From the Publisher. Echoes of the Future is a stunning compilation of recent graphic design and illustration that is inspired by our collective visual memory. Today’s young designers are not copying elements from classic modernism, letterpress printing, and other design styles of the past, but rather, they are synthesizing them to create a new aesthetic that emanates quality, timelessness, and sustainability.

This book showcases an up-to-the-minute style trend that promotes the impression of visual longevity in these times of economic uncertainty and contrasts sharply with the rapidly shifting styles of previous years that seemed out-of-date almost immediately. While the work featured in Echoes of the Future deliberately seems older, one realizes how clearly different and contemporary it is when confronted with genuine examples from the past.
