Graphic design is one of those everyday phrases that everyone knows. ‘Oh, you’re a graphic designer, that’s good’ is often heard, but do we really know what graphic design is?
Graphic design is a means of transmitting information to another person in a certain way. You could tell people the information, if you are around and if they can hear and understand you. But if you are conveying the information visually, then that is called graphic design.
Art and technology combine harmoniously to create visual images and text to portray the ideas of one person to another. These even are communicated in a way that appeals to certain people or makes an impression when portraying you.
Examples of graphic design that will see in everyday life are road signs, office notes, subway maps, park regulations, advertisements, and much, much more. The job of the graphic designer is to make the text or images understandable.
Graphic design is used to create all the type of image or display text in a way that associates an idea with a product. For example, a simple and nonsensical font, strong words, and raw images can instill a strong and powerful feeling in a reader, and the reader then associates the concept of strong and powerful with the advertised product.
Instruction books, guides, and textbooks are produced by graphic designers. The way that text flows around all the images, the uniformity, the layout of the page, the labeling of diagrams are examples of graphic design.
The best example of how graphic designers make things easier and more interesting to read and the view is the web. Technology such as Flash animation, along with background colors, fonts, and images, combine in modern websites to convey information in a way that, again, represents the image that the website owner wants to convey.
Design can be purely image-based. These are many powerful in advertising or to overcome barriers such as language or cultural barriers. In this case, images are used to communicate information and also feelings and moods. When you see a picture of an ice cube, you know that it is cold, so you can use it to convey the idea of coldness without having to type it in.
This has advantages: loud, clear, interesting, fun, but also some disadvantages. You cannot convey a complicated message using only images. The image itself should convey a short and forceful message.
Designers also use text. Instead of using the meaning of the text to define the message, designers can amplify the message through the actual form of the words themselves. Imagine someone saying “talk to me” in a calm, quiet voice. Now imagine the words are yelling at you. The meaning may be implicit in the way they are delivered to you.
In other words, you have a customer, and you have a customer. You probably know what you want to say to your client, but it’s up to graphic designers to be the conduit to get that message across in the best possible way.
The type of fear that I will be able to address during this article is an everyday feeling or phenomenon. Fear may be a totally human reaction and feeling no matter the man’s age, appearance, nerves, muscles, or how daring he’s. A psychological point of view is that fear is defined together with the essential senses or emotions that man feels. However, it can accompany anger, pleasure, pain, or sadness. Generally speaking, fear is related to those emotions that emanate from real tangible or intangible dangers. But, you discover yourself on the other side with worry or longing, which are usually the results of a surprise, threat, danger, or whatever.
Fear can appear when a person is exposed to a shameful or humiliating situation, or when he sees others suffer that fear for themselves, or when he receives horrible news. Frequent or prolonged exposure to fear can lead a person to a state of imbalaLiving in such a state that would require him to present a design, which may be a simple and direct visual means of communication that penetrates deeply into the conception of the recipient.
But where can this case be?
How does the concept evolve?
How can the graphic designer reach a state of both creativity and invention? Both states are based primarily on the ability of all the designers to overcome that state of confusion, which usually begins with the initial steps of the evolution of concepts. Subsequently, that state would gradually develop and turn into fear. It is essential that the designer overcome his fears by overlooking this state, which fear could reach.
These conditions and advantages can help the designer to maintain his ideas and the tools to execute them. They would allow you to explore the truth and be responsible for his feelings, behaviors, and practices. These main aspects would make up an ideal scenario to encourage the designer to work alone or in a team, with a positive effect and results that will guide him towards creativity.
However, creativity, or let’s say “creative thinking,” and problem-solving skills largely depend on the designer’s ability to organize and classify information from him and extract the important and useful pieces of information. To realize this, he must be familiar with the work required, his environment, the message he intends to convey, and the means to execute his ideas. All this would give a kind of self-protection and defense to his ideas. It would always be strong to break the confusion and fear of him.
When would fear and creativity be created?
Both professional and non-professional designers share these feelings, no matter where they are or how old they are. It is a fairly common phenomenon among workers in this creative field. But, graphic designers would reflect these sentiments very differently from others.
