Pizza, drinks and social hour will kick off this AIGA movie night, followed by the feature presentation and an in-person Q&A with director and producer, Briar Levit.
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 and will be setting up movie before the showing and answering questions after. 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.
