What the Heck is Graphic Design?

November 1, 2016

Many people know me for the photography side of my business, so as I opened my studio last week, my open house brought up the subject of the other half of what I do: Graphic Design.

I got a lot of odd looks until I started to explain, but in all fairness “graphic design” is not a real descriptive title. So, “What the heck is graphic design!?” What services can I provide to you with this half of my job? It’s simple, but quite diverse!

Graphic design is basically the artistic side of media, or creative ways to get information out. We work with both typography, imagery and other graphics to make a wide variety of work. Often graphic designers are seen in the advertising world making: logos, brochures, signs, magazine\book layouts, business cards, packaging material, social media graphics and other marketing materials. However, our diverse skills allow us to do other types of graphic work like wedding and event invitations, stationary, t-shirt designs, posters, book covers, photo books, and other personal media. Some designers, whether with a coding partner or solely, even design websites.

With that kind of list it’s difficult, even as a designer, to put a label on us. The combination of typography and imagery makes the sky the limit in what a graphic designer can do. My favorite part about having both photography and graphic design in my business is the fact that the two overlap. My skill and interest in both helps me to be better at both my jobs. Plus offer more functionality and creativity to my clients.

So, whether you’re getting married, starting a new business, or somewhere in between my services can apply to you! Now let’s get designing.
