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 and Photoshop.

The elements that are primarily used include the following:

  • Texture
  • Illustrations
  • Shapes
  • Type
  • Color
  • Photos

Each of these elements are used in specific ways that we will talk about in our next blog post. The elements can be used alone or in any combination of two, three or more.

You can find graphic designs being used in the following:

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

While this is just a few of the most common ways graphic design is used, it barely scratches the surface for potential uses. For more information about graphic design and how it’s used, be sure to visit back with us on our next post, soon.
