Gorgeous War

The Branding War Between the Third Reich and the United States

Author/Illustrator/Editor: Tim Blackmore

Gorgeous War examines ways in which modernist design ideals influenced German and American heraldry, and argues that the two visual worlds form the foundations of contemporary corporate brand programs. What is the legacy of apparently toxic signs like the swastika? Inheritors of the post–Second World War world increasingly struggle to find an escape from an intensely branded environment—to find a place in their lives that is free of advertising and propaganda.
