The field of graphic design applies several page layouts and visual elements to create an interactive format that connects with people. It involves the use of a visual medium to pass a message across. These visual media can be billboards, posters, flyers, illustrations, infographics and animation.
The history of graphic design goes as far back as the Egyptian hieroglyphics, where they used symbols to communicate. However, the term was created in the 1920s print industry. Graphic design during this time was used to refer to aesthetic appeal and marketing. But as the world has progressed, graphic design has become more than just marketing.
