Graphic Design Tools circa . . . #throwbackthursday


As promised, for your graphic design #throwbackthursday pleasure I've pulled these photos for your reflection:

Graphic Designer's Artboard ~ #throwbackthursday #tbt

Remember the old T-square and triangle or an actual artboard or pasteboard? I have to say, I do! At one time this was my desk. Used to have lots of Pantone markers too!

Typography, Waxing Galleys of Type ~ #throwbackthursday #tbt

I really enjoyed waxing galleys of type sticking them on my pasteboard and creating a mechanical to go to print. Imagine having to kern type and change leading without the mighty computer? . . . I've got to say thank goodness for Adobe Creative Suite, haha!

Graphic Designer's Tool Box ~ #throwbackthursday #tbt

Can you name all the tools on the tools palette above? The graphic designer's tools of the trade!

Thanks for taking a look back with me! Do you miss any of the old ways of designing for print?
