CSCA to Present Documentary “Graphic Means” to Students
We are thrilled to partner with CSCA as they present “Graphic Means: A History of Graphic Design Production”.
We are thrilled to partner with The Columbus Society of Communicating Arts as they present Briar Levit’s documentary “Graphic Means: A History of Graphic Design Production” to our students on Wednesday, March 28. Released in 2017, “Graphic Means” explores graphic design production of the 1950s through the 1990s—from linecaster to photocomposition, and from paste-up to PDF.
“Up until just over 30 years ago, when the desktop computer debuted, the whole design production process would have been done primarily by hand, and with the aide of analog machines. The design and print industries used a variety of ways to get type and image onto film, plates, and finally to the printed page. Graphic Means is a journey through this transformative Mad Men-era of pre-digital design production to the advent of the desktop computer. It explores the methods, tools, and evolving social roles that gave rise to the graphic design industry as we know it today.”
