Project summary: The OER resource was adopted as a cultural support to the idea of creating correct graphic design projects to help the students understand the value of the artistic tradition that has created the conditions for the the birth of the discipline. Graphic design projects are implemented often as a tool without understanding the importance of the disruption in the artistic world that Futuristic art created in Italy and Russia in the 1900s. This OER book manages to combine a very important historical perspective with very practical tools that help the students create better projects and develop further their design culture.
