Graphic Means: A History of Graphic Design Production

It was brought to our attention that a fellow graphic designer, Briar Levit, is crowd funding a film about the design process before the desktop computer. The title of the film is “Graphic Means: A History of Graphic Design Production”. Needless to say, we are very excited and we would like to encourage you to contribute if you can.

How would you place those images alongside your text? And what would you hand over to the offset printer when you were done? 

Up until just 30 years ago when the desktop computer debuted, this whole process would have been primarily done by hand, and with the aide of fascinating machines that used a variety of ways to get type and image on to the printed page.”

Time-lapsed Airplanes Landing!

We found this story on Designboom and we could not resist reposting it. American film professor and photographer Cy Kuckenbaker has captured every airplane that landed at san diego international airport a week ago between the hours of 10:30am and 3pm in a time-lapse video. the concept was born from an image by ho-yeol ryu at hannover airport – showing a herd of the massive machines in one visualization and Kuckenbaker wanted to capture the unusual flight path that brings planes very low right over the center of the city of san diego, causing them to drop behind a hill the make the runway. to create the video he would shoot the planes on a cloudless day individually then isolate the image of the plane and composite each one together in a timeline with adobe premier.
