Open Access Graduate Research Paper


If you are not a graphic designer, you probably do not realize what goes into the creation of the pages of the magazine you are reading. From complex jobs, such as putting together a magazine, to simple layouts, like a one page newsletter, there are several stages through which a project will pass as it moves from the designer's idea to the printed piece in graphic production. A knowledge of type styles, effective arrangement of illustration and text matter, drafting techniques, and today's new technology equipment is essential to managing the production of printed materials. This investigation is confined to each step of planning and the tasks involved in the design and layout stage and the image assembly stage in the photo offset lithography production method. I will also discuss the advantages of using computer equipment in graphic production.
