Things every aspiring graphic designer must know

Know The Simple Facts
The graphic is a visual i.e. Art, Imagination, Expression and this involves many mediums such as drawing painting, engraving or lettering, and giving clear and explicit details. The Graphic is built on the visual elements such as line, color, shape, texture, space, form & typography combined together in a room to create an idea or convey the meaning.

The Design is to decide upon the look and function of something before it’s made i.e. Thinking, Problem solving, Practicality, Theory. In graphic design, there are rules that can be considered. These rules are called the “Principles of Design”. The design principles are seen in every well-designed piece of work. Few key principles of Design are Contrast, Hierarchy, Alignment, Balance, Proximity, Repetition, Simplicity, and Function.

How does Graphic Design work?
When we bring Visual elements and design principles together we have Graphic Design. Graphic design is not a drawing, a painting, a creating poster or logo in a computer, these things are the means to the end and are skills in their own right. Graphic design is not about making things look pretty. “Graphic Design is the organization and presentation of information developed through a creative process for a particular function”.

In graphic design we must first understand the information, a message or a brief and then research, think, imagine and develop and create a solution, a concept in order to communicate that information, tell a story, a message, or idea in a visual way. It’s only once we have a solid idea developed through the design process we can use our skills with layout, color, typography, and creative tools to bring that idea to life.

Starting Stages of Art
Once upon a time that would be with just the aid of a pencil or a paintbrush on paper. Today it’s all those things and more, we also have cameras, computers, printers, since the invention of the print press which enables reproduction on a mass scale graphic design has been to communicate and spread messages worldwide. Through the evolution of technology today we are surrounded by an abundance of visual communication.

Art in Today’s Evolution
Now graphic design is implemented across a broad spectrum of media both print and digital jobs such as Advertising, Branding, Web design, Interface design, Magazine layout, Paper engineering & Packaging, TV/Motion Graphics, Infographics, Signage, Art, and Installations and Digital art. If you are looking to pursue a career in graphic design you will inevitably end up creating work across one of those sectors.

Over many decades in the past graphic design has shaped culture through pop art, political art, and commercial art. And now the graphic design has a big commercial site, it’s associated heavily with commerce and used to sell and advertise things but that’s not all it has to be.

How Graphic Design is going to Revolutionize in the Future?
The power of graphic design to inform, influence, and instruct on a commercial level can also be used to educate and inspire a generation. I believe graphic design is the unity of two opposing forces, artistic expression, and practical application, design theory. As a graphic designer two forces will always be at odds with each other in your mind. When you can harness these two forces together in harmony then you can create great visual communication.
