Printmaking and graphic production are one and the same job. Printmakers handle the pre-processing of printed matter, overseeing the process from the idea stage until the work is ready for printing or publication. The role of a printmaker is therefore to mediate images and data in such a way that receptive interfaces such as printed matter and monitors display them correctly and clearly. Printmaking is a certified trade.
The work of printmakers is largely done with computers, using drawing, image processing and layout software. As a printmaker, you could work in print shops, advertising agencies, or corporate graphic design departments.
