The new retrospective More is More not only guides visitors on Corsillo’s personal journey, but also provides a glimpse into the development of the graphic design styles of the 80s and 90s. In the early days, Corsillo assembled designs with mechanical paste-ups, cutting and pasting to create press-ready art. Today, as one might expect, his work is all computer-based. His early work, in the forefront of Postmodern and New Wave design, helped transform the graphic design field. Appropriating pop-art imagery and modernist collage techniques, and using an irreverent approach to type and a shocking color palette, the end product became a rock-and-roll/punk style with a twist.
