1992 – David Carson
Deconstructing traditional design
Using the Macintosh, David Carson broke free from the rules of classical graphic design and tried things with fonts that had never been done — purposely distressing them and mixing styles. As art director of Ray Gun magazine, he invented new typographical and layout techniques to create his distinctive look and usher in a new era of independent magazines.
Released May 18, 1992
Macintosh Quadra 950
The first Macintosh in a tower design, the Quadra 900 series featured an Ethernet port for high-speed connections to computer networks. For sheer power, it left the previous-generation Macintosh IIfx in the dust — quickly becoming the creative tool of choice for photographers, publishers, and ad agencies.
