History Of Graphis Magazine — Graphis Magazine, The International Journal of Visual Communication, was designed and published by Walter Herdeg from 1944 through 1985. It originally presented work from Fine Artists such as Picasso, Vasarely, Munch, and many more; later, it presented the evolution of Graphic Design as we know it today, followed by Illustration, Photography, and eventually Advertising.

Herdeg also initiated Graphis Annual (Design integrated with Illustration) in 1952, followed by Photographis (Design integrated with Photography) in 1966, and Graphis Posters in 1973. He also published books on a variety of topics such as Comics, Diagrams, Ephemera, and Television Graphics.

In 1985, Herdeg retired and sold Graphis to B. Martin Pedersen, who redefined the Annuals by separating them into Design, Photography, Advertising, and New Talent for student work. He also began publishing non-Annuals in Typography, Branding, Brochures, Annual Reports, and Logo & Letterhead. Pedersen continued with the Magazine until 2005 when it ceased due to global economic decline.

From 1997-2000, (issues 307-323), Graphis commissioned great writers such as Tom Wolfe (interviewed Milton Glaser in issue 331), Truman Capote (wrote about Richard Avedon’s portraits in issue 86), Pete Hamill (wrote about “The Public and Private Art of David Levine” in issue 321 and Milton Glaser in issue 324), and Paola Antonelli (wrote about Pierluigi Cerri in issue 286, Italo Lupi in issue 276, and Achille Castiglioni in issue 285), among many others. Pedersen relaunched the Magazine as Graphis Journal, which continues to present quality editorial about the talent behind the extraordinary artwork in the industry.

I sincerely believe that much of the Platinum and Gold Award-winning work we have been receiving over the years qualifies as fine art. —B. Martin Pedersen
