Graphic Means – 28th May 2017

The UK Premiere screening of “Graphic Means” at the Dundee Design Festival.

Graphic Means is a design documentary about the history of Graphic Design Production. We are excited to be the first to screen the film in the UK at the Dundee Design Festival.

Film Synopsis

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 ofways to get type and image onto film, 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.
