The change in technology for graphic designs
back in the day they had to manual make the cuts with x-actoknives which also meant they had to take accurate measurements down to the millimeters
"Just like the designs/images, fonts and types used to require a lot of manual work as well. The designers had to actually discuss at length the size and styles of fonts they thought would work for a logo or a design".
"many graphic designers use a variety of additional tools for refining and editing their works to meet the requirements of their clients".
“In one week, you could be working on anything from creating brand identities or developing advertising concepts, to designing websites and large corporate documents such as annual reports, which keeps things interesting and keeps my mind sharp.”
Technological advances have made our jobs much faster and certain things far easier.
Graphic design is just one of the many careers that have changed due to the advancements in technology.
Thanks to the advent of faster, more powerful computers and faster Internet, we expect our graphics to be higher quality. We as viewers expect more colors, higher resolutions, and more detailed designs
We expect there to be a certain "WOW!" factor in design these days.

"Gone are the days when graphic design was solely focused on the obvious graphic elements of a product like its packaging and marketing materials. "
"Companies like Ikea and Johnson & Johnson employ the world’s most sophisticated marketing teams to spread their message and gain analytics across digital media globally."
"Today we can only look back at the impact the digital revolution made on how we communicate, the way we work, and even the way we socialize."
Today, adding type to images is a breeze. Even the youngest of Snapchat users can add letters and words of all different shapes, sizes and colors to their snaps with a few finger taps. In pro-level designs, a small error or mistake in type can be cleared up in literally seconds.
Even still, options were limited. Today it’s effortless to manipulate the size, fonts and positioning of type. In the days before computers, making any wholesale changes to type could add an extra day or more to a project.
Desktop computers, laptops and tablets are all staples of the graphic design industry, as is software such as Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign. We know the rise of computers and technology has vastly improved the way many industries do business over the past 20 to 30 years, but you could argue that none has benefited more than graphic design.
