Mainstream    –  Cubism  –    Punk   –  Anom

Different types of Subcultures:

  • Skin heads
  • emo
  • Punk
  • Hippy
  • Skaters
  • Flappers
  • Heavy Metal
  • Grunge
  • Mods
  • Rockers
  • Greasers
  • Teddy Boy

By knowing what words they use, you can tell what subcultures they are from.

Mostly about music, style of dance and some drugs.

Designs must have homology ( it fits together)

Movement vs Trend/ style

subcultures always begin underground – then spreads by word of mouth. Becomes well-known out to an event to incident.
