Being Creative isn’t Enough for A Graphic Designer.

To be a graphic designer means to have one foot in the world of art and one foot in the world of business. It means being able to understand the wants and needs of your client and then translating that into designs that are effective and eye-catching.

As you probably already know, a graphic designer is responsible for creating visual concepts, using computer software or by hand, to communicate ideas that inspire, inform, and captivate the audience. It’s a very exciting job and I’m going to tell you some of the basics that you should know:

So what is a graphic designer exactly?

A graphic designer is the visual language interpreter of written words, phrases, and messages. We use typography and imagery to create communication materials such as posters, magazines, books, websites, promotional pieces, and logos.

Is it only about aesthetic visuals?

Many people think the job of a graphic designer is only about creating aesthetic visuals, but it’s so much more than that. We work to understand and explain our clients’ goals and vision with every project while taking care to match their specific tone and style.

Being creative is not enough!

Design is not only about being creative, but it also involves solving problems. I love when a client comes to me with an idea or problem and we work together to come up with a solution that not only works well but looks good too!


So, you got the points right? Design is not only a visual, it is a way of life, a point of view. It involves the whole complex of visual communications: talent, creative ability, manual skill, and technical knowledge. Aesthetics and economics, technology, and psychology are intrinsically related to the process.

To create new and innovative designs, you have to think differently. I believe that if we can visualize our dreams, we can make them a reality. Design connects people from all over the world in an emotional way.

Therefore, let’s keep exploring and improving our potential by continuously learning and trying something new, and becoming better designers!
