Graphic Means: A History of Graphic Design

It’s unlikely to rival the explosive content of any upcoming  Hollywood blockbuster, but that hasn’t stopped the new trailer for docu-film Graphic Means: A History of Graphic Design Production catching my eye.

It is a history of the changes that took place in the graphic design industry from the 1950s through to the introduction of “desktop publishing” in the 1990s.

I don’t work in Graphics specifically, but I have done a bit within that sector over the past 10 years or so.  Whilst many of these skills were before my time, I did spend time at university painstakingly positioning Letraset transfers and experimenting with my own somewhat crude version of paste-up boards.

The precision and craft of doing everything by hand in the trailer really resonates with me.  Look forward to this coming out in early early next year!
