"an accessible and richly illustrated guide to the most influential and highly politicised imagery of the 21st century. Sounds good to me." -Huffington Post"a tremendous amount of material from around the world since 9/11. All of it is carefully and accurately contextualised." -Eye"art and graphic design is driving social and political change in the 21st century [Visual Impact] uncovers common themes about use of technology and the role of the designer. ...the consumer now has to pick through a barrage of images and content to work out what is relevant and important - something this new book does in style. ...There's also a fascinating and very timely study of protest posters and artwork documenting the ongoing conflict in Syria." -Design Week"visual protest continues to be a vital part of any social movement... [McQuiston] makes an excellent case that trained and dedicated designers, artists and photographers are continuing to produce visual dissent of great inventiveness and power. ...an immensely thorough selection of international projects." -Creative Review
