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 is a journey through the 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.
Join us for the first Portland screening of GRAPHIC MEANS: A HISTORY OF GRAPHIC DESIGN PRODUCTION. Director, and Portland-native, Briar Levit, will be in attendance after the screening, along with her crew for a Q&A session.
