Graphic designers create visual concepts, by hand or using computer software, to communicate ideas that inspire, inform, or captivate consumers. They develop the overall layout and production design for advertisements, brochures, magazines, corporate reports, brand corporate identities, build advertising campaigns, raise awareness, provide public education, manage corporate image, and provide insight into new ways to create and use old tools. Design has become and will only continue to grow into a way of thinking about the world, and a lens with which to re-imagine not only how things are, but also how things COULD be.
