Graphic Design

WELCOME TO GRAPHIC DESIGN!

You may have no idea what Graphic Design is, so let's take a minute to define it. Graphic design, also known as communication design, is the practice of combining imagery and typography for the particular purpose of communication. This form of communication can be physical (print design) or virtual (web design, animation, user interface, etc.). This work can happen on any scale, from the design of a single poster to a national signage campaign, or from a company’s logo to the vast content of an international brand. It can also be for any purpose, whether commercial, educational, cultural, or political.

You may be thinking, "Okay, but what can I do with this knowledge?"
