Graphic Design in Modern Times
Since the industry of graphic design has developed over the years to support a growing number of graphic designers, the basis for graphic design is no longer a small area. In today's world graphic design is used for television, billboards, web sites, films and all manner of print media such as magazines and brochures.
Graphic designers begin with a basic layout for a project and then utilize art forms like typography and images. The type of lettering, colors and where images will be placed to convey the final impression are just more aspects of the final design. The use of computer technology has given designers an easier and more reproduce-able way to blend design elements for a finished project. Print items such as business cards, brochures, fliers and even books are all representative forms of graphic design.
Graphic design and the work that graphic designers create can be seen in the world every day.

Print items such as business cards, brochures, fliers and even books are all representative forms of graphic design.
