Before There Was Photoshop, Graphic Design Was a Tedious Process

Online education company Lynda has published a video detailing the taxing process that graphic designers took to create a layout, before digital graphic design tools came into play.

The video explains how they would use analog tools to achieve a layout, which they could pitch to clients.

It details every step, putting into perspective the number of hours, labor, and measurements the graphic designer would have to do.

For example, graphic designers would have to wait 24 hours to get their words typeset in the fonts of their choice, and in multiple sizes to allow for options.
