YES! It’s the PSUGD premier of Graphic Means!! Our very own Briar Levit has worked on this film for the last few years and has been traveling around the world screening and talking about it. Now, it’s our turn! Come out and celebrate Graphic Means and Briar! THERE WILL BE POPCORN!

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 1950s through the 1990s—from linecaster to photocomposition, and from paste-up to PDF.
