True, if you refer to layout and graphic design.
But probably not true if you talk about typefaces. A good typeface is a
typeface that does not look dated in 50 years, and the history of
typefaces are full of such examples. Take a look at book typography
between 1600 and today. Most books nowadays use the same typefaces as
were used then, with good result.
