Profile for PortableGraffitiGraphics
My graphic design experience started in high school with a major in art. I won first place in an ad layout contest.
I worked in a print shop after school starting when I was 16. Stayed with the same company after graduation.
I was a paste-up artist. They don't even call it that anymore, I guess. Instead of a computer we used x-acto knives and rubber cement. Cut up all the words and pictures and glued them in place instead of a computer key for "cut and paste." Lines were created with a roll of chart pak tape. I still have a small collection of these "vintage" tools. Can't make myself get rid of my t-square, triangle, waxer, burnisher and proportion wheel even though they are useless tools now.
