Explaining the process verbally can be difficult for people to understand but a picture paints a thousand words as the saying goes.

Graphic designers work with drawn, painted, photographed, or computer-generated images (pictures), but they also design the letterforms that make up various typefaces found in movie credits and TV ads; in books, magazines, and menus; and even on computer screens.

Designers create, choose, and organize these elements-typography, images, and the so-called “white space” around them-to communicate a message. Graphic design is a part of your daily life. From small things like gum wrappers to huge things like billboards to the T-shirt you’re wearing, graphic design informs, persuades, organizes, stimulates, locates, identifies, attracts attention and provides pleasure.

Graphic design is a creative process that combines art and technology to communicate ideas. The designer works with a variety of communication tools in order to convey a message from a client to a particular audience. The main tools are image and typography.Typography is basically the Font or style of the words used.

In order to succeed in the competitive world of graphic design, students must choose the best college in graphic design in Malaysia to study at so that they can gain the necessary skills and knowledge to succeed.
