Graphic design is the approach of visual communication, and problem-solving through the use of type, space and image. Graphic designers use various methods to create and combine words, symbols, and images to create a visual representation of ideas and messages. Graphic designing is a combination of typography, visual arts and page layout techniques to produce a final result. It often refers to both the process (designing) by which the communication is created and the products (designs) which are generated. Common uses of graphic design include identity (logos and branding), publications (magazines, newspapers and books), print advertisements, posters, billboards, website graphics and elements, signs and product packaging.
