Graphic design. The boundaries are limitless.
If you can imagine it, you can create it. A plus to graphic design is not having to start from scratch, but instead being able to modify, add to or take away from an already existing photograph. Adding lines, textures, colors and other design aspects can create a whole new way of looking at something very ordinary.
Created From Scratch
Starting from an original design with a simple vision in mind can create something never seen before even when based off something we see every day. Designing from scratch may be harder with no shapes or designs to help the process, but it can often become the most unique.
Real Photos, Real Medium
Oftentimes graphic design is linked to the many new digital forms of photo manipulation, but using traditional mediums can add different effects and add that touch of real such as the real paint dripping down the page.
As stated, digital photo manipulation is a popular design option. Often in this type of design, real photographs are combined digitally to create a photograph.
Finding the photos to be used in a digital manipulation is often as important as the ability to be able to combine them together. With “real” being the ultimate goal, it’s important the pictures fit together well.
The official or most formal definition is:
Information Graphic or Infographics are “graphic visual representations of information, data or knowledge. These graphics present complex information quickly and clearly, such as in signs, maps, journalism, technical writing, and education.”
