Graphic design can be seen at every corner. Not only is graphic design apart of the the advertisement industry, but it is also apart of the architecture industry. The High Line located at Chelsea is a great example of design at its best.
The High Line was created in order to take place of the New York Central Railroad spur called the West Side Line. The makers of this architecture design created a garden that pedestrians can use to walk around and enjoy the view. There is a section in the high line that gives a great view of the buildings and billboards overhead. Not only was this inspiring for young artist, but they also had street venders with great advertisement logos in front.
After visiting the High Line, I also had the chance to visit the Printed Matter. This small shop showed many books printed by a variety of people. They also had books that were made a variety of ways such as hardcover or with plastic cover on the front, either way, all the books looked amazing. These books helped to inspire me when having to create my own. It helped give me the idea to make my book using printed paper. It also helped me to design to sew the pages together.
In conclusion, this trip was amazing and gave me a lot of inspiration when it came to making my own book. It was great to travel and see art in the city. Looking outside of museums is also a great way to view art and other graphic designs in different forms which was an amazing experience for me.
