What is Graphic Design?



Dictionary.com defines graphic design as “the art or profession of
visual communication that combines images, words, and ideas to convey
information to an audience.” A graphic designer is responsible for
arranging and using elements on different types of media (such as a
poster, a package or a website), most likely with the use of a graphics software program such as Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop or InDesign. These elements include:



  • Photos
  • Illustrations
  • Type


  • Shapes
  • Color
  • Texture


Where is Graphic Design?



Graphic design is all around us. It is in our morning paper, on our
commute to work, and on the cover of our favorite books. The most common
forms include:



  • Logos
  • Websites
  • Business Cards
  • Advertisements
  • Book Design
  • Brochures
  • Billboards
  • Product Packaging
  • Posters
  • Magazine Layout
  • Newspaper Layout
  • Greeting Cards


This list barely cracks the surface…ticket stubs, skateboards,
matchbooks, train schedules, credit cards and countless other products
and everyday items all utilize graphic design.
