The Graphic Design Department at the University College of Bahrain (UCB) organized a field visit to Al Ayam newspaper on Nov 7, 2013 to learn more about newspaper printing and production methods. The team consisting of 8 students was led under the guidance of Graphic Design Senior Lecturer Ms. Lillian Hallak.
The visit was an exclusive opportunity for the students to come across the practical experiences that they have learned theoretically in the classrooms. At the Printing Press, they discovered the technical requirements needed to turn their designs into printable material, as they understood the relationship between digital files, films, plates, proofs, and how to set the right requirements for offset printing in addition to the post press procedure.
“The filed visit was a real learning experience for our team. The students could practically see and learn various aspects printing and designing process in the newspaper. We are thankful to UCB and Al Ayam for providing us with this opportunity”, commented Ms. Lillian Hallak, senior lecturer, Graphic Design Department.
