What is graphic design
Graphic Design, according to the American Institute of Graphic Arts
is the art and practice of presenting and designing experiences and ideas with visual and verbal material.
Graphic designers produce visual material by combining images and typography.
This visual information is useful for improving/designing cards, brochures, banners, and other printed materials.
Graphic designers also aid in the dissemination of ideas to the general public.
The messages that they blend with the aesthetic frequently affect how people view the subject at hand.
Campaign and election posters and banners impact our perception.
The designer must exercise extreme caution while selecting fonts and colors, as well as pay close attention to which parts of the text require emphasis.
Designing subway maps is another application for graphic design.
For example, the designer of the New York subway map had to represent a complicated thing in the simplest way possible.
The same may be said regarding the Google Maps application’s graphics. UI is also in close contact with GD.
