Graphic Means | Screening at CR Library

Event on: 2017-November 14th 6:00 PM - 8:30 PM

AAF Cedar Rapids / Iowa City is proud to present “Graphic Means: A History of Graphic Design Production”

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 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.

After the screening we will have a Q&A with a group of graphic designers and a discussion of processes, progress, and design problem solving. This will be a great event to bring a group and learn more about design production and craft.
