Thirty-six design firms and individual graphic designers, representing an extraordinary and comprehensive cross section of New York's top design talent, display their portfolios in Graphic Design: New York 2. In response to this technological revolution, many of the design firms create websites for both clients and themselves. Almost all designers have embraced the computer age (after some hesitation) and use state of the art electronics in their offices. And through it all, design has retained its humanity; rafting through this age of high technology, design has simply become more accessible, as you'll see from browsing through this book.
