Graphic design is a professional discipline that focuses on visual communication in its simplest form. Graphic designers are critical thinkers and problem-solvers combining artistic and technical skills to choose, place and arrange words and imagery to create visual representations of ideas and messages. Designers focus primarily on print media such as brochures, promotional posters, publication design for books and magazines, logos, branding and more. Graphic design skills are used in, but not limited to, corporate identity design, website design, publication design, motion graphic design, advertising design and product packaging. Using industry-standard software students develop technical skills to create meaningful and creative designs that visually communicate to a target audience.
