Graphic Design (Design Dictionary)


Google describes graphic design as "the art or skill of combining texts and pictures in advertisements, magazines or books."

A graphic designer is what I aspire to be myself because I love combining text and images and always have done. Ever since I was allowed on the computer I was using Microsoft Publisher to make posters and graphics for fun.

Graphic design is simply the term used to describe the type of product which is produced. Therefore it's different to other categories of design like website design or interior design. Graphic design only describes what's been made, meaning that something printed or displayed on the internet or as a poster is still called graphic design.
