Graphic design is a form of visual communication using images to convey information or a message as effectively as possible. In graphic design, text images are also considered as an abstraction of symbols that can be sounded. Graphic design is applied in communication design and fine art. As with other types of design, graphic design can refer to the manufacturing process, design methods, the resulting product (design), or any discipline that is used (design).
Graphic design art includes cognitive ability and visual skills, including typography, illustration, photography, image processing, and layout.
Graphic design was originally applied to static media, such as books, magazines, and brochures. In addition, in line with the times, the graphic design is also applied in the electronic media, which is often referred to as interactive design or multimedia design.

Principles and elements of design
This element of the same graphic design as a basic element in the other design disciplines. These elements (including shape, shape (form), texture, line, space, and color) form the basic principles of visual design. These principles, such as the equilibrium (balance), rhythm (rhythm), stress (emphasis), the proportion ("proportion") and unity (unity), then forms the structural aspects of a larger composition.
Graphic design equipment
The equipment used by the graphic designer is an idea, mind, eye, hand, hand drawing tools, and computers. A concept or idea is not normally considered as a design before it is realized or expressed in visual form.
In mid 1980, the arrival of desktop publishing and the introduction of a number of graphic software applications introduced a generation of designers to computer image manipulation and 3D image creation that previously was a laborious job. Graphic design by computer allows the designer to see the results of layout or typography changes instantly without the use of ink or pen, or to simulate the effects of traditional media without demanding a lot of space.
A graphic designers use sketches to explore complex ideas quickly, and then he has the freedom to choose the tools to solve them, by hand or computer.
