Graphic design is an applied art that communicates visually via text and images. Graphic design employs typographic aesthetics and the compositional arrangement of text, decoration, and images to convey ideas, thoughts, and attitudes that go beyond what words alone can represent.
A person uses graphic design to express himself, but not with words, but with images.
