Graphic designers are creators of creative concepts using a variety of shapes, colours and fonts to convey a message to their targeted audience. Graphic designers possess knowledge and skills in drawing, typography and illustration. Their work can include anything from designing covers for magazines and books to designing logos, websites, posters, advertisements and even product packaging.
Graphic designers can either work freelance or for a company, and they can simultaneously work on more than one project.
