Item Description
Are subcultures, like graffiti, floating free in their own space, or are they connected to the rest of
society? In Forms of Rockin’, graffiti styles for the first time are connected to graphic design and
other popular culture expressions such as music, fashion, photography, industrial design and
movies. Anssi Arte analyses some of the most powerful visual symbols of the 1970s, 80s and 90s
and compares design, display typefaces and graffiti styles. The visual styles of James Brown, Blade
Runner, the Memphis group and grunge music all appear together with classic fonts and graffiti
writers.
The clear yet analytical narrative and carefully crafted visualizations make it appealing to both
graphic design aficionados as well as graffiti enthusiasts. But Forms of Rockin’ is more than that.
This is a must for everybody interested in contemporary popular culture and design history.
Forms of Rockin' traces and defines the stylistic conventions in graffiti letterforms that have
become iconic and globally acknowledged ideals. From the early New York tags to the mid-1990s
ugly-fresh styles of Scandinavia, Forms of Rockin’ tells the story of how popular culture and graffiti
styles influences each other.
