Graphic Design

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.

A graphic designer may use a combination of typography, visual arts and page layout techniques to produce a final result.
