Graphic design is a form of visual communication and leverages images and other visual elements to convey ideas. It has become an umbrella term for various types of design work.
From logos to billboards to packaging for products, graphic designers bring concepts, ideas, and stories to life using typography, shapes, color, and images. They educate and inspire customers to learn more about something, to make a purchase, or to sign up. They use software such as Photoshop and InDesign to create static images and lay out pages. Designers who focus on printed materials like magazines or brochures are also known as print designers.
