The creative industries thrive on embracing and encompassing the very latest advancements and technologies into their day to day processes. Of all the creative industries, graphic design is the industry that completely and fully embraces modern advancements, and nothing is more advanced than computer graphic design. Computer graphic design has been one of the most revolutionary occurrences in the development of graphic design over the 21st Century, completely transforming the way in which designers create and alter their cutting-edge designs.
Computers have for some time been considered to be indispensible to virtually every type of profession, and graphic design is no exception. The computer graphics software and computer graphic design programs that have been developed by software giants Adobe, Apple and Microsoft have enabled designers to take complete control of a range of graphic design processes and concepts. Even laborious tasks such as creating animations can now be completed within a matter of minutes thanks to the introduction of computer graphic design. Computer graphic design programs are now as ubiquitous and commonplace in the professional graphic designers’ toolbox as the more traditional tools of pencils and sketchpads.
Computer graphic design is often considered by many graphic design experts to be the future of graphic design, and computer graphic design programs are certainly leading the way into this. Computer graphic design has even entered mainstream culture thanks to the general release of sophisticated computer graphics software, ensuring that everyone from teenagers Photoshopping their Facebook pictures to businesses DIY-ing their corporate logo design is actively involved in utilising computer graphic design.
Although computer graphic design has certainly had a noticeable impact on the way graphic designers work, some traditional graphic designers are of the opinion that computer graphics software simplifies the process of graphic design too much. Graphic design is inherently a process which is established through creative concepts and innovative thinking, and there is a strong argument that computer graphic design removes this vital creative element. It can also be argued that the computer graphics software associated with computer graphic design provides designers with far too many tools and choices, meaning that the work they achieve will be below the standard of that achieved using traditional graphic design tools and methods.
Although there are many convincing reasons both for and against the usage of computer graphic design, there’s no denying that when properly planned and carried out computer graphic design achieves remarkable results.
