1940s Timeline

Overview of significant art movements in the decade.


This timeline, focused on major art movements over the 1940s, was an assignment in the Spring semester of my second year at CalArts.

The project was an exercise in hierarchy. Given a great deal of information—expressed through type, imagery and color—across a large format, how do you control when the viewer sees different elements? How do you tell a story using visual principles like weight, scale and direction? What does it mean in a timeline when the viewer goes from seeing Bebop Jazz on the right side of the page to images of World War II on the left?

Using depth, scale and color as my major tools I was able to control a great deal of the visual story. In addition, subtle typographic moves allowed me to control the details of each event.
