Cover: Graphic Means: A History of Graphic Design Production

May 17 Film Screening

Before design was digital.

The GDC Manitoba Chapter is proud to present the Winnipeg debut of Graphic Means: A History of Graphic Design Production. 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. The documentary, Graphic Means, explores graphic design production of the 1950s through the 1990s – from linecaster to photocomposition, and from paste-up to PDF.
