Graphic design: The Focus of creative services
Graphic design is the bedrock of creative services. Graphic design techniques combine the use of text and images to create a desired message and this is referred to as visual communication.. This makes the artistic craft of graphic design a strategic tool in creative services.
The process of creating a graphic is an artistic process. The most successful graphic designers must always have a strong background in fine art. This is why the process of creating a graphic is referred to as illustration, and a finished graphic was in the near past referred to as an artwork or drawing. It is important to note that the term graphic (to mean a finished visual) is relatively new and came about in the 21st Century with the use of computers graphic design software such as CorelDraw and Illustrator. Before such software came into existence, graphic designers used to create artwork by hand on the drawing board using typography, instruments and coloured pigments. In the graphic design process, typography, typesetting and photography and drawn visuals were skillfully combined by graphic designers and paste-up artists on the drawing board to create magazines, brochures, letterheads, business cards etc. Other services such colour separation, bromide reduction, film production and pre-print production (pre-press) were subcontracted to agencies and printers.
The first element to be considered and designed in a Corporate Identity is a logo. A company should have a strong and relevant logo which provides a summation and a sign-off for all its communications. The logo serves as a focal point for the entire brand and should always appear on as many Brand Interaction Points as possible. There are many different types of logos in the market. Some are more literal, while others are symbolic or abstract. Some are more image based, while others are a unique typographic stylisation of a word or the name of a company. There is no specific formula for creating the best logo for your Corporate Identity. That is best decided between your company and our design team, by looking together at what you feel summarises your company visually and creates a powerful signature for your brand.
