Graphic design is a creative process, used to convey a message with focus on visual communication and presentation. The field as a whole is also referred to as Communication Design. A graphic designer may use a combination of typography, visual arts and page layout techniques to produce a great design.
However, the mind is the most important design tool. Aside from technology, a creative mind booming with ideas, good judgment, observation, quantitative and analytic thinking are required for creative design layouts and rendering. New ideas can come by way of experimenting with tools and methods too.
