Jen takes a look at the evolution of the printing press and typesetting technology — from letterpress and the Linotype machine, to photo-based paste-up techniques — and how these advances radically changed graphic design. History has taught us that big changes to the underlying technologies can open up new communication possibilities. This is happening again, now, on the web. Today, with CSS Grid, Flexbox and all the pieces of Intrinsic Web Design, we have the freedom to place anything anywhere on the page. What can similar transitions in the past teach us about our future?
