GRAPHIC MEANS: A History of Graphic Design Production

November 14 only

Join us for this presentation of GRAPHIC MEANS, followed by a Q&A with director Briar Levit!

It’s been roughly 30 years since the desktop computer revolutionized the way the graphic design industry works. For decades before that, it was the hands of industrious workers, and various ingenious machines and tools that brought type and image together on meticulously prepared paste-up boards, before they were sent to the printer.

Graphic Means, explores graphic design production of the 1950s through the 1990s—from linecaster to photocomposition, and from paste-up to PDF. It explores the methods, tools, and evolving social roles that gave rise to the graphic design industry as we know it today.

Directed by Briar Levit. USA. English. 2017. 85 min.
