Graphic design as profession

Designers solve a wide range of communication problems, collaborating with a variety
of clients—from a not-for-profit organization attempting to reach families in need, to a
brand promoting a new product, to a corporation that wants to go green, to a revitalized
city’s transportation secretary who needs a way finding system.
The following list is an attempt to be as encompassing as possible in keeping with standard thinking.

a poster can promote an event; it can explain how to save someone who is choking;
or it can communicate the voice of dissent.
In addition, some people categorize visual communication according to media—for instance,
interactive design, which certainly can be utilized for a variety of goals, including promotion,
information, editorial, entertainment, or presentation. If you keep communication goals
in mind, it will aid your understanding of how applications are utilized.
