Graphic design is art... with a purpose.
No matter where you are throughout your day, you have been influenced by graphic design. It's literally everywhere, stretching from any magazine you read up to the billboard you passed by during the morning commute. Paul Rand once described design as an entity with no single definition. "Design can be art or it can be aesthetics. Design is so simple, that's why it is so complicated." So allow me to simplify it for you!
