Graphic design which is in short a process of visual communication, and problem-solving through the correct use of typography, images and colors. It involves creation and/or manipulation of typography, images and colors together with production design. In an era where computers does everything, this often requires the know-how of using computer programs like Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign. Or most of Adobe systems softwares (also because they are my favorite). The images below were made by the some of the mentioned programs;
In recent years, mainly on the side of publications, most of the graphic design industry had been focused a lot on the side of hard copies (printed results), but in an era of smart devices, the field has joined the awesome side of soft copies (products readable by our smart devices: Androids, iPhones, Amazon’s kindle devices, etc). These soft copies comes in formats like PDF, E-pub, mobi, Djvu, etc. and can even be made interactive.
But it doesn’t end there, there is a limit to what you can do with these softwares; for example one can’t paint a forest or a tree, right? Okay let take the later back, may be one can make a matte painting (an image made by finely combining other images), but there is still a limit to how far you can go. That when Autodesk softwares like 3ds max, Maya and MudBox kicks in (or Cinema 4D and ZBrush from different vendors). Check out these images created by 3ds Max;
