Many people wonder, what is graphic design? Graphic design is basically the arrangement of various materials such as photographs, vectors, digital illustrations, logos, slogans, text, and color schemes into a presentation that is visually appealing and represents the message or image that a person or company wants to portray. Examples of this include billboards, product packaging, magazines, movie posters, newspapers, music Cd’s and more recently website design. Graphic design is also referred to sometimes as graphic art, however it usually involves creating an entire layout, page or packaging that would include graphic art as one of the elements. Sometimes graphic designers are given the title of Art Director, Creative Director, Graphic Artist and so on, but the title does not really matter as much as what your experience is with certain creative mediums and your ability to apply your talents to them.

I'm New To Graphic Art And Design, Where Do I Start?
I know all this can seem overwhelming if you are new to graphic design, but don’t worry, if you have an interest in art and design you can do it. Our very own Creative Director herself did not know that she was going to become a graphic artist and designer until after playing a simulation game on her computer in her spare time. She soon found out that she mostly enjoyed creating her characters look and feel through the designing of their clothing, hair and makeup. Before she knew it she had created over 1,200 unique 3D characters for her game. In graphic design you will come to realize that it is all about the “look and feel” of whatever the project it is that you are working on. So the best place to begin is to try to get down on paper, in writing or a sketch whatever idea it is in your mind that you want most to create. Once you have your main thought down, research which graphic design software would best suit your needs to bring your creative production to life. Learning about graphic design will enable you to bring your idea to fruition with 3D, colors, depth, sound, animation or however you envision it to be.
