The Graphic Design Professional
The fundamentals of graphic design are creative stimulation, effective communication, clear solutions and appreciation of the ongoing historical structure of design.
Embracing a range of cognitive skills, aesthetics, and crafts, including typography, visual arts and page layout, the design professional works to understand the vision of the client.
Through education, examination, and hands-on training, the professional designer maintains a balance of current trends while keeping an eye on the basics of design.
