What really is graphic design? The definition is “the art or skill of combining text and pictures in advertisements, magazines, or books”. It goes much wider than just that. It’s not just on advertisements, magazines, or books. It’s all around you. Clothes, food boxes and containers, and much more. Just look around. It’s getting more and more popular and known with the increased technology usage. Graphic Design can just be a hobby or it could be used as a business technique, by making attention grabbing signs, advertisements, and such. Any image made up of graphic elements can be considered as graphic design. It is a very free form of art because you can use any line, shape, or image you can find. If you’re making a an image then you might want to sketch it out first. Then you can go to a PC and create the image using an editing/image making software, like photoshop.
