Before asking whether or not there is a career in graphic designing, we should understand the definition of graphic designing. Today, I’m going to answer all the questions every person has when he/she starts thinking about a career in graphic designing. So let’s take one by one :

What is Graphic Designing ?

Graphic design is defined as “the art and practice of planning and projecting ideas and experiences with visual and textual content.”- This definition is from the American Institute of Graphics and Arts.

So basically, Graphic designing is not just using beautiful arts, pictures, infographics, etc. in your designs but it’s more of a practice to use visuals, texts, infographics to create a communication to express ideas, thoughts, or messages.

These visuals could be in form of simple logos or a combination of web pages on a website.

Another definition of Graphic design by designer Alexandros Clufetos is “Graphic design takes graphical and textual elements and implements them into multiple types of media,” Graphic designing has numerous applications, I’ll discuss all of them in my another article.
