Design is the way of communicating something to someone else through visual means.
Graphic design is the process of visual communication and problem-solving through the use of typography, photography, and illustration. Graphic designers create and combine symbols, images and text to form visual representations of ideas and messages. They use typography, visual arts, and page layout techniques to create visual compositions. Common uses of graphic design include corporate design (logos and branding), editorial design (magazines, newspapers and books), environmental design, advertising, web design, communication design, product packaging, and signage.
Graphic design is in a period of rapid expansion and innovation. Designers are tasked with deciding how a message will look and be conveyed, as well as what the message says and even if it should be said at all. A graphic designer has the power over and the responsibility for the ideas and objects that shape our culture. Our graphic designers have exceptional skills to create beautiful objects and images, make meaningful messages, be persuasive, grow businesses, inspire emotional responses, and make ideas accessible to others. Graphic design is a dialogue with the world.
