Quick Reference

(established 1946)

This American periodical was originally named the Everyday Design Quarterly: A Guide to Well‐Designed Production to complement the Walker Art Centre's Everyday Art Gallery in Minneapolis, which was envisaged as a ‘consumer's art gallery’ and a stimulus for ‘a better environment for daily living’. The Centre promoted a wide range of modern design including product design, architecture, and transportation. The magazine reflected a similar range of material and propaganda, changing its title to Design Quarterly in 1954. The major emphasis was for many years oriented towards American design and, from 1970, it launched the first of a long‐standing series of special issues. In the early 1990s it expanded its scope to include many more fields of design including fashion, graphic design, interiors, engineering, and the urban environment. It is now published by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

Subjects: Industrial and Commercial Art.
