UnSquaring the Wheel: Comprehensive & Scalable Transformation

Professor Chris Bondy of RIT’s School of Media Sciences knows this is a crucial time for graphic communications businesses. “Many management methods are deeply ingrained in our industry. Unfortunately, many no longer apply in the current market and environment. But our research revealed some exceptional companies that go against the common wisdom and outperform their competitors in a big way.” That piqued his interest and he sought others who shared that understanding.

From the Victorian era to the start of the twenty-first century, the Mergenthaler Linotype Company dominated the typesetting and printing industries. Unlike previous books which have ended with the invention of the Linotype, Frank Romano tells the rest of the story. This book details the products, the people, and the corporate activities that kept the company ahead of its competition in hot metal, phototypesetting, and pre-press technology. Over ten corporate entities eventually formed the U.S. manufacturer, which ended its corporate life as a division of a German press maker.

The Old Bank

This book chronicles the dynamic life span of an important Rochester institution, a mutual savings bank, that by definition, was owned by its depositors and operated for their benefit. At one time in the U.S., there were more than 4,000 savings banks most having started in the 1800s. By 1990, many of these had dissolved, since they had achieved what they were created to do, and eventually fell prey to the changing and frequently unstable economic times. It also chronicles the contribution of some of the Presidents and Trustees to the Rochester community.

The New Medium of Print

Print is so familiar that it remains invisible to the average person. Frank Cost, associate dean of the College of Imaging Arts and Sciences at Rochester Institute of Technology and co-director of the RIT Printing Industry Center, has often wished for a small, fun-to-read book to give to people who were thinking about the world of print for the first time. Most of the available introductory books concentrate heavily on the technology, but say little about how people actually use print, let alone why.
