What is Graphic Design?

Graphic Design is the art of displaying content through print or digital mediums, including texts, images and graphic forms.

Designers develop entertainment, advertising, news and features in all forms, including print publications (magazines, newspapers and brochures) and digital and broadcast media such as game machines, television, web browsers, social platforms and portable devices. As technology continually develops in complexity, graphics designers too have to improve their duties and skills.

As technology continually develops in complexity, graphics designers too have to improve their duties and skills.

A course in graphic design would inspire one to communicate ideas through advertisements, brochures and other marketing communication materials. Graphic design would enable students to venture to specialised design firms as part of a collaborative team, while others being self-employed and work independently. This field enhances students’ creativity using complex graphic tools to manipulate text, images, animations and colour.
