Graphic design uses include identity (logos and branding), web site, publications (newspapers, magazines, and books), advertisements and product packaging. Design and composition is one of the most important features of graphic design. Possessing and refining your two-dimensional design skills will enhance the designer’s ability to develop a strong presence in print, as well as on the Web.
