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.
Graphic Means: A History of Graphic Design Production explores graphic design production of the 1950s through the 1990s—from linecaster to photocomposition, and from paste-up to PDF. Join us for a special screening.
Watch the trailer.
Join us for Friday Nights @CHM before the program! Enjoy dinner at Off the Grid’s street food market and drinks from our Cloud Bistro. Museum exhibits are open from 5 to 9 p.m.
