As a part of any graphic designer’s education there should be a look back at the days before computers. Not simply the creation of the printing press but the drawing boards and the glue, the spray booths and the scalpels.
Today’s designers have control of every aspect of their creations and the incredible range of technologies and communication tools mean anything is possible. Instant access to Font libraries from around the globe to direct to press printing, and not forgetting digital photography, this alone eliminated the need for high resolution scanning, at great expense, to the out-putting of film separations.
The tools available today are remarkable, but for some of use who worked ‘before computers’ the changes we have seen have been simply incredible.
