Roger Remington: Hardcore Modernist

“The body of theory established within the modernist pedagogical tradition is intrinsically hostile to an historical approach to graphic design.” -Ellen Lupton and Abbott Miller, Design Writing ResearchTherefore… Roger Remington’s selectivity in teaching material (i.e. teaching the class History of Graphic Design and only from the 1920’s to the 1960’s) is not necessarily a representation of arrogance or stubbornness of his own, but rather a transcendence of the modernist philosophy. Roger Remington is simply a hardcore modernist.
