Why is it so important to carefully consider who you use as your graphic designer? Graphic design isn't simply creating a digital drawing or throwing together a web design. The skill set that a graphic designer must have spans many different disciplines.

Graphic design is the methodology of visual communication, and problem-solving through the use of type, space and image. The field is considered a subset of visual communication and communication design, but sometimes the term "graphic design" is used interchangeably with these due to overlapping skills involved. Graphic designers use various methods to create and combine words, symbols, and images to create a visual representation of ideas and messages. A graphic designer may use a combination of typography, visual arts and page layout techniques to produce a final result. Graphic design 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. For example, a product package might include a logo or other artwork, organized text and pure design elements such as images, shapes and color which unify the piece. Composition is one of the most important features of graphic design, especially when using pre-existing materials or diverse elements.

A great graphic designer will not only be able to generate new illustrations, logos, themes and a cohesive marketing package. A great graphic designer will consider all the aspect of what they are designing and what the intended use and expected results are from their creation.
