Graphic Means Australian Premiere

Before design was digital…

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: A History of Graphic Design
, a major new documentary film charting the evolution of graphic design production, will be premiered across Australia by AGDA and will be screened in Adelaide on 22 June.

The film which is directed and produced by Briar Levit marks the three decades since desktop publishing changed the graphics industry forever.

The documentary explores graphic design production of the 1950s through the 1990s—from linecaster to photocomposition, and from paste-up to PDF.  

Seating is limited so be sure to book early.
