the art or skill of combining text and pictures in advertisements, magazines, or books.
The term graphic design can refer to a number of artistic and professional disciplines which focus on visual communication and presentation.
Graphic design often refers to both the process (designing) by which the communication is created and the products (designs) which are generated.
Various methods are used to create and combine symbols, images and/or words to create a visual representation of ideas and messages.
Over and over I've been thinking what really Graphic Design is and what do people think about it?
So I've decided to create a little investigation and design postcards and send them out to various people to see their thoughts about graphic design.
I have also published an advert on gumtree to ask people what they think about graphic design and see what responses I could get.
