Graphic design

The design drawing is a discipline that is responsible for creating visual arts used in different branches, especially in advertising.

The designs are intended to convey a message through images , fonts and colors. For this reason, today this profession has been very relevant, since social networks , blogs and other virtual forms have become its main means.


Graphic design has the objective of providing end users, clients or potential clients with an image of what the product or service will be able to obtain, or in fact, the product as such if it is a web page or mobile App.

On the other hand, the designs can also work temporarily if it is a poster that invites to a concert or play, whose graphic material after such event will be of no use.
