What is Graphic Design? All along I have been saying how Graphic Design is more than just knowing how to use programs like Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign – it’s about visual communication. In this video I am going to be discussing Design Theory and how your education in Graphic Design needs to begin with a solid foundation. The terms, ideas, and practices that we use to communicate visually (and also the ones we use to talk about design) are known as the elements and principals. That is why over the next couple of weeks I will be doing videos that focus on these elements and principals of Graphic Design to help you get your design career on track.
