Join us for an exclusive and free screening to celebrate the unique documentary »Graphic Means – A History of Graphic Design Production« by Briar Levit and warm-up for TYPO Berlin 2018, May 17–19 at Haus der Kulturen der Welt. The film will be screened in English.
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 co...mputer. It explores the methods, tools, and evolving social roles that gave rise to the graphic design industry as we know it today.
THE DIRECTOR / PRODUCER
Briar Levit (Director + Producer), is an Assistant Professor of Graphic Design at Portland State University. She came up as a designer in the late 1990’s in San Francisco, and missed the cold type era by just a matter of a few years.
