Feature: Fellow travellers

In his monthly column for Design Week: www.designweek.co.uk/Home/Default.aspx, Adrian Shaughnessy looks at the idea of communication design and illustration as being 'fellow travelers', a concept put forward by designer Steven Heller in his upcoming book with Seymour Chwast, "Illustration: A Visual History".

Steven Heller is one of graphic design's great evangelists. He is the author, or at least co-author, of more than 100 books (the number grows by five or six each year). He is especially evangelical about design history, and finds value in sophisticated German typography from the 1930s, as well as in primitive matchbox labels.
