Graphics Means – Film Screening


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 1950’s through the 1990’s—from line-caster to photo-composition, and from paste-up to PDF. Its a fun look back that helps us understand where we are headed.

Proudly presented by MINI St. John’s, with the designers, CNA and the St. John’s Women’s Film Festival
