“The prevailing US stronghold of Postmodern graphic design is cluttered with icons. From the late 1980s onwards, a number of key schools (CalArts, Cranbrook, Rhode Island), personalities (Keedy, Carson, Makela, Deck) and publications (Ray Gun; Beach Culture) combined to form a catalyst, gradually establishing a network of ideological typographic discourse. …Emigre is also confined to this group of icons, but it is a misleading view. It remains essentially semi-detached from the leading PoMo players — not necessarily a step ahead, but working to one side.”
