What is a Graphic Designer?
A person who assembles images, typography, or uses motion graphics to create a design piece for publishing, prints, or electronic media such as brochures and advertising.
The main goal of a graphic designer is to convey a message that causes the viewer to take action. Designers work with painted, drawn, photographed or digital images, they create, choose and organize these elements to communicate ideas/messages.
Why I chose graphic design?
I've always known that my career path would involve art. After taking various art classes I realized that I have a passion and interest in graphic design. I love working with Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator. Graphic Design would be a job that I would love to have.

Must have flexibility, customer-focus, creativity, acute vision, ability to handle rejection and commitment to their work.
