Everywhere you look, graphic design is all around you.
The interface on the device that you're looking at this website, the cover of almost every book you own, the packet of your morning cereal, the titles of your favorite film or program, the logo on the brand of your favorite shoes, the cover of your favorite album, some of the clothes and tee-shirts you wear, is everywhere.
Graphic design is the art of using visual elements, typography, and color, to convey a message.
It is about communication, it is about interpretation, it’s about attraction, and it's been with us for a very long time, developing and evolving alongside our societies.
Although many people think that graphic design is just about making pretty pictures, it is of course and so much more than that.
It's about understanding a message and using a combination of research, creativity and media, to convey that message in a way that is both aesthetically and functionally balanced.
But all of them, no matter what their job title is related to, in their specialism, they will have studied and employed the fundamental elements of layout and composition and typography.
