    You design a beautiful web page, an enticing email or a killer printed page, a gorgeous package. You put your heart and soul into it and it doesn't work, nobody buys what you are selling. Or maybe, you have something that is working but you think it could perform better.

    Nicholas Michel from Precision Dialogue will show us how user experience testing and analytics can use tools like eye tracking, emotion-detecting headsets, carefully selected focus groups and advanced analytics to help you improve the effectiveness of your designs and user interfaces and to find out how your target audiences really use and react to your creations.

    Nicholas will talk about how these tools can produce analytics that will help you make your messaging more efficient, often on the scale of hundreds or even thousands of percent increase. Learn out how to be a better designer by targeting what your audience REALLY responds to.

    GRAPHIC MEANS: A History of Graphic Design Production
    USA, 2017, Briar Levit

    This new documentary explores how graphic design production was accomplished before the advent of the desktop computer almost three decades ago. From the 1950s and into the 1990s, it took some ingenious analog machines and tools, and skilled hands, to marry images and type on meticulously prepared paste-up boards that were delivered to the printer. This fascinating overview by art instructor Briar Levit remembers this vanished moment in design history.

    Cleveland premiere. DVD. 90 min. Screening co-sponsored by AIGA Cleveland, Cleveland Digital Publishing Users Group (CDPUG), and the Northern Ohio Illustrators Society (NOIS). AIGA, CDPUG, and NOIS members $7. www.graphicmeans.com

    The Cleveland Digital Publishing Users Group will celebrate our 30th Anniversary afterwards. Stay tuned for details.
