Design and printing production went from X-acto knife to computer in only 30+ years. Remember the days of mechanical pasteup? Cutting amberliths for charts and all those overlays with registration marks? These skills have been transferred to the computer, making life easier and faster, with the ability to print better! For example, in catalog work, the designer has to often fit many products on a page in a way that is still readable and attractive. The computer aids in speed and ability to do this today.
