Certificate in Graphic Design

The term graphic design can refer to a number of artistic and professional disciplines which focus on visual communication
and presentation. Various methods are used to create and combine symbols, images and/or words to create a visual
representation of ideas and messages.

A graphic designer may use typography, visual arts and page layout techniques to produce the final result. Graphic design
often refers to both the process (designing) by which the communication is created and the products (designs) which
are generated.

Common uses of graphic design include magazines, advertisements, product packaging and web design. For
example, a product package might include a logo or other artwork, organized text and pure design elements such as shapes and color
which unify the piece.
