Q: What is the difference between communication design and informaion design?

A: Infoemation design is a part of Communication design.Information design is not necessarily concerned with great aesthetics. It measures effective content and how the content is being consumed. Communication Design is broader and includes all - visuals to content.


Q: What is the Difference Between Graphic Design and Visual Communications?
A: graphic design is actually quite a bit different than the visual communication field. Students will learn a broader number of topics in a communications-oriented major or career field, and they’ll be responsible for a comprehensive approach to communicating with customers or clients in a visual way. Graphic design, by contrast is quite narrowly focused only on making a visual representation of key concepts within a visual method of communication, like advertising or web design.


Q: what does a graphic designer do?
AGraphic designers have a deep understanding of the fundamentals of design. This includes things like color theory and typography. They also need to know how to build brand assets (like logos) and make sure those assets are consistent across all designs for a brand.


Q: what does a visual designer do?
A: Visual designers do a ton of different things in their day-to-day work. It’s a bit of a hybrid between graphic designer and UI designer, but with an extra layer of skills thrown into the mix. Visual designers have to understand user experience, user interface, and web design.
