Special Screening of
Graphic Means: A History of Graphic Design Production
directed, written and produced by Briar Levit.
Up until just over 30 years ago, when the desktop computer debuted, the whole design production process would have been done primarily by hand, and with the aide of analog 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 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.
Briar Levit (Director + Producer), is an Assistant Professor of graphic design at Portland State University. Graphic Means: A History of Graphic Design Production is her first film.
