PrintingFilms.com was established by Doug Wilson in 2012 after his work as director and producer of Linotype: The Film. During the filming process, Doug was given a box of 16mm Linotype promotional films by Dave Seat for digitization.

In 2013, Carl Schlesinger (a former Linotype operator at The New York Times) donated his extensive collection of films to The Museum of Printing which assisted in the preservation of these films in 2015.

When Disciplines Collaborate

As I near the end of my career as an SLCC student, I’ve come to truly appreciate the amazing faculty, adjuncts, and superior quality of work that is being produced by my peers. I’ve noticed how much more I look around these days, noticing logos, checking out color schemes, looking for harmony and contrast and continuity. I’m more aware of images, typography, layout, and design. I reach out to touch things more. I look longer. I explore deeper. I question further. I watch. I listen. I, sometimes, even close my eyes and experience “it” purely without my primary vision interfering.

I’m also noticing that I’m more available for beautiful work to find me. Collaborative efforts that take my breath away. Works of art that I witness in wonder… How did they do that?! How did they create it?! Could *I* do something like that?

This morning, I came across a piece of work that touched me for several reasons. I’m sharing a link to my blog here, where I wrote about it and where I also posted the video. For those of us that are in the Visual Arts field, the video I’m writing about is a smorgasbord of sensory delights! Typography… layout… animation… color… words… design… music… movement… stories… a message in images, sounds, and words all together at once.

May you also find inspiration within these 7 minutes and may you also be touched by the incredible message that comes through it.

“They Called Me Pork Chop.”

Creating your first INK post!

Last week, INK SLCC members were invited to start creating and sharing posts with the entire community. To ease the transition from “enthusiastic design student” to “enthusiastic design student AND turbo-awesome-design-blog-contributor” – and to clear up any confusion about the publishing process, here’s a little tutorial that explains EXACTLY how to create new posts and share content on the inkslcc.com website.
