A trip to Mortada Printing Press for history of graphic design students.
The students of the course history of graphic design GDES315.
This trip helped them understand better the lectures about the history of printing when they visualise how color separation is done, and preparing 4 colored CMYK plate films then printing them, they saw the whole process of assembling the 4 CMYK plates to get a final full colored design printed on different type of papers. Then they were introduced to how laminating papers and bags is done then cutting and folding packages and bags. They worked on motorised hand press printing machine that makes foil stamping and embossing.
After that the students were able to prepare a silk screen plate out of group work design they prepared at university. So they prepared the silk plate film then printed from it several copies to the whole group.
So grateful that this trip educated and entertained the students more than their expectations. This trip supervised by Mr. Wael Zoar, and Mrs. Hanaa Mohammad (the course instructor).
