ABOUT THE THEME:

Anyone who was been involved in graphic design for many years is likely to reach the conclusion that the activity is inherently cyclical. A graphic style emerges, usually by a gradual and somewhat mysterious process. A first wave of “early adopters” notices the style and begins to use it. The new style is now fashionable. Its exponents are in the know and delight in being one or two steps ahead of their slower moving colleagues. At a certain point almost everyone notices the style and it becomes commonplace. A really successful style comes to seem like the inevitable look of its time, but in the style’s ubiquity lie the seeds of its downfall. It starts to appear trite, over-familiar and dull. The early enthusiasts don’t want to produce design that is merely ordinary and they are the first to drop it.  Eventually, everyone is bored with the style, it ceases to communicate and gradually it disappears. This is not, however, necessarily the end of its existence. When the social and cultural moment is propitious, a strong style may be rediscovered and return. The revived style can never be the same as it was the first time, though, because it will inevitably be tinged with the feeling of being retro, a nostalgic quotation and rerun of something more vital that took place in the past.

The textual explanation of the theme is available on link ‘Social Reruns
