Introduction to Graphic Design – a practical approach

About Graphic Design

Graphic design is an ancient craft, dating back past Egyptian hieroglyphs to at least 17,000-year-old cave paintings. It’s a term that originated in the 1920s’ print industry. It is the art and practice of planning and projecting ideas and experiences with visual and textual content. In simple terms, graphic designers make visuals to communicate certain messages. These visuals can be as simple as a business logo, or as complex as page layouts on a website.

In the modern context, Graphic design helps the producer connect with the consumer, and it conveys the message of the project, event, campaign or product.

Companies use the visual concepts of graphic design to promote and sell products through advertising, to convey complicated information in an easy-to-understand format to develop a brand identity, and so much more.


Graphic design is a necessary part of any business to convey their story. Graphic design communicates more than just words to your audience, even if we select simple design elements like color scheme or font choice, it can help to portray an emotion or feeling that supports your message.

Graphic designers are always demandable in every organization and industry, particularly those with digital skills. One will be able to add value to any workplace and design is something which is necessary for every other business.

While most companies are hiring graphic designers for commercial purposes, many designers also use their work for artistic expression.
