I know I'm going to show my age here, but back in the day, when I was a young graphic designer, the tools of the trade included magic markers, spray mount, scalpels and long 'galleys' of typesetting. All artwork was manual, the process could be laborious, albeit considered. Many a long evening was had cutting and pasting the most intricate type layouts and calculating CMYK colour breakdowns for the printers.
Then, in 1986, I bought the latest, state-of-the-art Macintosh SE-30 from Apple. A massive 30mb hard drive! This revolutionised the way we worked – and from that day on I have used a succession of different Apple computers. Each time there has been an exponential increase in mega, giga, terra, ram bam a ding dong biteage (I'm not the technical type, as you can see).
But I hope that, despite the latest all singing, all dancing technology that comes our way, each brief and challenge has been met with the same considered eye as when we were hunched over a piece of artboard equipped only with a blue pencil, a scalpel and a desire to make engaging design that works.
