Early Civilization

It is interesting how it can be said that modern design can trace its origins back to early cave drawings. The pictogram above is one of the earliest cave drawings found. From these paintings to the Sumerian writing and all the way down to the Egyptian hieroglyphics. They are all tied together in their
ability to have influenced future civilizations. As civilizations developed throughout the ancient world, these cultures slowly developed the techniques pasted down to them from their ancestors and perfected it to their benefit, giving raise to early written language. The Egyptians being the first to combine both imagery and writing into their documentation of events at the time. This gives one an idea of the genesis of what we call design.
