Graphic Means: A History of Graphic Design Production

Synopsis
Up until just over 30 years ago, when the desktop computer arrived on the scene, the whole design production process would have been done primarily by hand, and with the aid of analogue 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 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.
