Roughly 30 years ago, graphic design was one of the first fields to completely embrace digital production. Before then, going to print required elaborate studios filled with experimental machines and carefully prepared paste-up boards. Type and image were brought together by hand, and people actually did math (math!) to construct their layouts.
It was arduous work, constantly evolving with the times and wonderfully captured in this feature-length documentary, exploring design production of the 1950s – 1990s, from linecaster to photo-composition and paste-up to page layout programs and PDF.
