The production end of graphic design was
so drastically different back then.
(I love posting about it.)
When I graduated from Art School, I was hired
as the assistant art director, at Success! Magazine.
One of my responsibilities was to "order the display type."
Back in the day, headlines & decks were
set on a machine called a typositor.
Lettering Directions is the company we used,
and some sassy lady named Fran
was my contact there.
Sometimes she would say things like:
"Ach, we're so busy today, people are waking-up
from the dead & ordering type!"
Is Fran alive somewhere, dreaming of heads & decks?
Caps & Small caps?
