A graphic designer
hangs around a funky office with a laptop in one hand
and a ping pong paddle in the other. Yeah right
thatd be the made-for-T.V. version. In
reality, a G.D. works for a bunch of different businesses,
organizations and humanoids we call clients. Each of
these aforementioneds needs to communicate a certain
message to certain people we call the target audience
(no darts involved).
G.D.s fulfill this need by creating
visual things like posters, logos, book covers and package
design (see list below). But because technology is ever-changing
so are the "things" the G.Ds are creating.
Today, graphic designers are also creating for websites,
motion graphics (a.k.a. titles for TV shows and movies)
and more. Heck, even the term "graphic" designer
is becoming outdated because of new technologies.
