    Oli Ahmed [[]] A graphic designer is a visual communicator, someone who creates visual concepts by hand or by using computer software. They communicate ideas to inspire, inform, or captivate consumers. Graphic designers help to make an organization recognizable by using a variety of mediums to communicate a particular idea or identity to be used in advertising and promotions. Examples are fonts, shapes, colours, images, print design, photography, animation, logos, and billboards. They also collaborate with artists, multimedia animators, and other creative people on many of their projects. 2016-11-23 20:11:29
