This paper proposes to study the design process and design criticism in the well known post-modern moment in Cranbrook Academy of Art’s Department of Graphic Design under Katherine McCoy’s Co-Chairmanship (1971 to 1995). This research intends to show some problematic concepts, like Deconstruction, that surrounded the school and some visual examples of graphic experimentation that could be seen as visual meaningful ideas.
