Just got done taking my graphic design history test, and I’m pretty sure I got 100% of them right (maybe missed one if the guy who worked for the firm that I put down for the answer designed the advertisement on his own and not for the firm).
Oh, yeah, wait, unless the professor counts off for spelling of the Polish poster designers’ last names. Because no way in hell would I ever be able to recall names like “Franciszek Starowieyski” with perfect spelling. I’m pretty sure I put down “Starojewski” for all of those … I swore there was a “j” in there somewhere. But I know who I’m talking about, dammit. All his images are kind of grotesque.
There were two that I questioned, and I googled them as soon as I got back. One of the images was even from a day I missed class. By powers of deduction, I recalled all the designers we’ve covered who worked on Olympic graphics, and realized only one of them could have done the 1968 graphics (Lance Wyman).
And this one by James McMullan made me draw a blank.
I mixed it up in my mind with another image by Lou Dorfsman because the professor did an obnoxiously loud “ha, ha, HA!” for both of them during lecture.
Oh, graphic design, how I missed learning about you.
Ever had a severe case of test anxiety only to find out the test you’re taking is easy-peasy?
