Title: Graphic Design

Graphic Design
  • By Megan Woodrow

Why I want to be...a Graphic Designer!
I would like to be a graphic designer because
they have a great career. Graphic Designers can
express themselves creatively like most things
involved with the arts. They design posters,
books, layouts and much more. I think this would
be a great career for me because I love to show
my creativity.
Career Description
Graphic designers make everything from magazine
layouts and advertisements to University
calendars etc. They create logos, graphics, and
eye-catching designs. They are excellent in
visual communications and use different colours,
photographs, font styles and other graphics to
communicate a message, tell a story or create a
specific feeling.

    attend for a graphic design program are
