Graphic Designers

Usually describes as something you create that is pleasing to the eye and attracts the viewer’s attention. Graphic design can also be classified as a combination of text and graphics. When designing logos, graphics, brochures, corporate identities, newsletters, posters, signs and any type of visual communication, it often creates an effective message to the viewers. Graphic designers often use desktop publishing software and techniques to achieve their goals.

There are many things related to graphic design. Its not just creating a picture on paper and adding a few colors. It takes skills and creative thinking to be a Graphic Designer. You should know what you want to achieve, how you are going to achieve it and who your target market is. Be creative and make sure what you want to create does not only look cool but works as well.

Dictionary.com says this:
"The practice or profession of designing print or electronic forms of visual information, as for an advertisement, publication, or website."
