D:Screen Making and Designing Screenings

During Dundee Design Festival running 25 – 29 May 2017, there are two great design related screenings taking place at West Ward Works thanks to D:Screen who host regular design/arts/maker related films in Dundee.

As part of this they are also delighted to be hosting the UK Premiere of Graphic Means in Dundee, charting the journey through this transformative Mad Men-era of pre-digital design production to the advent of the desktop computer. It explores the methods, tools, and evolving social roles that gave rise to the graphic design industry as we know it today.

Maker the Movie screening
Sat 27th. May — 18.00 – 21.00 — Gallery 3 — FREE

“Maker” is a feature-length documentary that looks into the current Maker Movement in America – a new wave of Do-It-Yourself and Do-It-Together culture fueled by passion and powered by the advent of new technologies.

The Maker Movement, sometimes called the Third Industrial Revolution, subverts traditional manufacturing by building on innovative concepts such as open source, local manufacturing, crowd funding, and digital fabrication. Breaking the hobbyist movement stereotype, Maker delves deep into this ecosystem of design and manufacturing in the Internet era. The lm explores the ideas, tools, and personalities that are driving the Maker Movement – and returns with a timely snapshot of one of the transforming influences of the current age.

Graphic Means: A History of Graphic Design Production
Sun 28th. May — 18.00 – 20.00 — Gallery 3 — FREE

Graphic Means is a film about a journey through the transformative Mad Men-era of pre-digital design production to the advent of the desktop computer.


Up until just over 30 years ago, when the desktop computer debuted, the whole design production process would have been done primarily by hand, and with the aide of analogue machines. The design and print industries used a variety of ways to get type and image onto lm, plates, and finally to the printed page.
