Did you know, the Sumerians created one of the first written languages?
They created this language most likely as a means of recording trader inventories to ensure couriers didn’t steal anything on deliveries. These earliest languages were logographic—icons represented entire words instead of phonetic sounds. This suggests a natural ability of humans to use visual representation to communicate complex ideas, a cornerstone of modern graphic design.
As far back as 200 AD, China used wood reliefs to print and stamp designs on silk clothes, and later paper. In 1040, Bi Sheng invented the world’s first movable type printing press out of porcelain, more than 400 years before Gutenburg brought a similar technology to Europe.
Did you know Egyptians are often cited as the first logo designers? In the 13th century they used to brand domestic animals with hieroglyphs to mark ownership of their animals.
Technically, the world’s first logo is the coat of arms, used as a symbol to represent family houses or territories. Scholars theorize the practice was popularized during the Crusades, where intermingling soldiers from different countries and houses incentivized a means to tell everyone apart, particularly on armor and battle flags.
With the advent of the printing press in Europe, humanity was able to recreate text, art and design on a massive scale, and for relatively cheap. The ancestors of modern companies—also on the rise—soon took notice of how such visuals could affect shopping behaviors and increase profits, thus modern graphic design was born.
You’ve heard the term ‘graphic design’ countless times before, but do you know where it comes from?

The first edition of Photoshop (Photoshop 1.0) was released in February 1990.
It was created in 1988 by American brothers Thomas and John Knoll.
