Getting out of class

tribunelogo2005_fcsmThe Bismarck Tribune has been publishing a newspaper since 1873 making it the oldest continuously operating business in Bismarck and the oldest employer of graphic artists in town.

The tools have changed dramatically since the Tribune printed its first newspaper and artists have helped the product evolve.

Veronica Selway, Prepress Supervisor for the Tribune, gave the sophomore Graphic Design and Communications class a tour of the design and production areas. She detailed how the newspaper is designed, output to plates and printed along with being packaged for delivery.

Selway’s presentation was wonderful and helped reinforce the principles discussed in class.

Thanks Veronica and the Bismarck Tribune!
