Overview Of Graphic Design Opportunities Online
Mr.Timothy Anietie is the Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer, TimTech Solutions. He says, “Graphic design is the art of communication, stylizing, and problem-solving through the use of type, space and image. The field is considered a subset of visual communication and communication design, but sometimes the term “graphic design” is used interchangeably with these due to overlapping skills involved.
“Graphic designers use various methods to create and
combine words, symbols, and images to create a visual representation of ideas and messages. A graphic designer may use a combination of typography, visual arts and page layout techniques to produce a final result.
“Graphic design often refers to both the process (designing) by which the communication is created and the products (designs) which are generated. Common uses of graphic design include identity (logos and branding), publications (magazines, newspapers and books), print advertisements, posters, billboards, website graphics and elements, signs and product packaging.
“For example, a product package might include a logo or other artwork, book cover, organized text and pure design elements such as images, shapes and color which unify the piece. Composition is one of the most important features of graphic design, especially when using pre-existing materials or diverse elements.
It is a daily needed skill on the internet environment as virtually everyone needs a touch of graphics or two to make unique visual advertisement”.
