AIGA Austin and Stateside Theater are proud to present Graphic Means: A History of Graphic Design Production (“Documentary”). 

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 lm, 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. 

After the screening, we will have a Q&A with Graphic Means director/producer Briar Levit. Briar 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. 

Graphic Means: A History of Graphic Design Production (“Documentary”) will be a great event to bring multiple generations of designers to talk about production and craft as it has changed over the decades in the practice of design and printing.
