AIGA NWA presents Graphic Means: A History of Graphic Design Production

Join us for a Northwest Arkansas AIGA movie night! We will kick the event off with light snacks and a social hour at 6PM, followed by the feature presentation at 7PM.

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 explores graphic design production of the 1950s through the 1990s—from linecaster to photocomposition and from paste-up to PDF.

About the Director:
Briar Levit is an Assistant Professor of Graphic Design at Portland State University. With this project, she deliberately chose an all-woman crew for Graphic Means, something relatively unheard-of with the percentage of women in top positions in the film industry still extremely low.
