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.
