    What is a Graphic Designer

    A graphic designer is a professional who specializes in creating visual content for various mediums such as print, digital, and multimedia platforms. They use their creative skills, design principles, and technical knowledge to develop visually appealing and communicative designs.
    Graphic designers are responsible for a wide range of design projects, including logos, brochures, advertisements, websites, social media graphics, packaging, and more. They work closely with clients or creative teams to understand their needs, goals, and target audience to create designs that effectively convey messages and achieve specific objectives. The tasks of a graphic designer can include:

    1. Conceptualizing and brainstorming design ideas based on client requirements or project briefs.
    2. Selecting colors, fonts, and layout styles to create a cohesive and visually appealing design.
    3. Utilizing design software such as Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, or InDesign to create and manipulate digital graphics.
    4. Collaborating with clients or team members to refine designs and incorporate feedback.
    5. Preparing design files for different mediums and ensuring they meet technical specifications.
    6. Keeping up with industry trends, new design techniques, and software updates to enhance their skills and knowledge.
    7. Occasionally managing multiple projects simultaneously, prioritizing tasks, and meeting deadlines.
    A graphic designer's role extends beyond creating visually appealing designs. They need to consider target audience, brand identity, and overall message while developing their designs. Good graphic designers possess a keen sense of aesthetics, creativity, diligence, and effective communication skills to bring their ideas to life.

    My experience with Paramount College has been unexpected to say the lease. I wasn’t looking to go back to school but when I was brought upon Paramount, I thought it was just another small college that was trying to get students to join. When I looked into the college more and got to know Nasreen, I understood her goal for her students and the success she wanted for us.
