Graphic design is the creative process of problem-solving and visual communication through the utilization of imagery, typography, icons and photograph in a visual manner. The field is often called a subset of communication design and visual communications design, however, sometimes the terms “graphic design”, and “visual communications design” are used synonymously, though the two fields are distinct. The term ‘graphic design’ comes from a combination of two words, ‘graphic’, which is defined as art, ‘design’ which refers to the creative process, and ‘design’. The term, ‘graphic’ design refers to the artistic process; while ‘design’ refers to the creation of visual art and artistic work.
