With technology growing in leaps and bounds, it doesn’t come as a surprise that more number of students today are pursuing a major in graphic design.
The work of a graphic designer is all around us, making the world more vibrant and joyful. They create illustrations, drawings, logos, color schemes, and layouts of magazine and web pages. They are the ones who choose text sizes and fonts, and often make all the visual elements of a project fit together in a way that is pleasing to the eye. Almost no product or service exists without the need for graphic design of some kind for marketing or brand identity purposes.
There are plenty of opportunities a graphic designer can get, whether it is in advertising firms, public relations firms, website design companies, and magazines and other publications. In some businesses,designers may be involved in the process of creating the packages for various products or even for designing video games.
We, at AIS Technolabs, have come up with Graphic Design Scholarships for all budding designers. Our intention is to give the designers an opportunity to hone their designing skills and get suitably placed in various industries thereafter.
Desired skills of a designer
The foremost skill that the graphic designer should have is his artistic ability. The designer begins many projects with free-hand sketches. Some computer programs may also require him to draw on the screen. Though computer software and applications aid the work of the designer, but the person must be an artist at heart.
Graphic Design Software
Knowledge of Graphic design software is as important in this field as an individual’s artistic ability. It’s desirable for students to have knowledge about the following :
- Adobe Photoshop — alter or edit existing images and the creation of complex images
- Adobe InDesign — page design and layouts
- CorelDRAW Graphic Suite X7 — illustration, tracing, photo editing
- Adobe Dreamweaver — web page design
