Creating a brand for a company means you are creating their image to promote for campaigns and visuals. This type of based work uses many aspects of the industry. The goal is to make a unique and recognizable image. A logo is very important to a company by making it representable and familiar.

Graphic designers work with both text and images. They often select the type, font, size, color, and line length of headlines, headings, and text. Graphic designers also decide how images and text will go together on a print or webpage, including how much space each will have. When using text in layouts, graphic designers collaborate closely with writers who choose the words and decide whether the words will be put into paragraphs, lists, or tables. Through the use of images, text, and color, graphic designers can transform statistical data into visual graphics and diagrams, which can make complex ideas more accessible.

Its creative process combining the use of technology and your mind to bring out ideas and bring them to life. If you make a poster, type a letter, create a business logo, a magazine ad, or an album cover and even make a computer printout you are using a form of visual communication which is graphic design. Anything you see every logo, every billboard, any ads, or any form of art was created by a graphic designer.
