Abstract

Although graphic designers play a major role in shaping the world around us/ many people are not even aware of this profession. Identifying one's college major as visual communication or graphic design often leads to even more questions, and it is difficult to provide a concise yet inclusive answer. Graphic designers combine visual elements to communicate a message. They could work for design agencies or major corporations/ or they could be self-employed. Some of the disciplines of graphic design include corporate identity/ magazines/ advertisements/ websites/ and brochures. A major in visual communication is a foundation for a career in these areas as well as many others.
