types of graphics designing

Graphics Designing has evolved into a vast industry now and the growth of almost every type of work greatly depends on it no matter if it is a website or a business. Before diving deep into different types of Graphics Designing, it is important to know that there are not any defined types of graphics designing and mostly they are classified by people based on their own knowledge and experience in the field of graphics designing but they never seem that much accurate to me.

Here I’m going to explain them based on my personal experience and understanding of it in order to make it easy for you to understand. I want you to follow along till the end of this article carefully in order to get to know about it in detail.

1. What is Graphics Designing?

In simple words, graphics designing is the art of designing different visuals for a business or company, organization, product, or any other type of work in a beautiful way with the help of different tools and software that are specially designed for this purpose.

In the process of branding our business or any other type of work, it can never be completed unless the graphic design part is done properly.

2. What are different types of Graphics Designing?

2 Main Types of Graphics Designing

There are the following two main types of graphics designing explained below:

Static Graphics Designing

  • Static Graphics Designing is that type of Graphic Design in which there is only static graphic work done and there is no animated work involved and it could be 2D or 3D. Essentially it means that all the graphical work done doesn’t involve any animated element but it is composed of static elements only and the end product is purely in static form.
  • Examples of static graphic design include Statically designed logos, flyers, thumbnails, signboards, pamphlets, brand identity designs, etc.
  • Here I’m attaching a face mask logo for one of my photos that I’ve built in Adobe Illustrator. You can also take a look at the logo for this website in the top left corner of this page which is also designed by myself.types of graphics designing
  • The main software for this type of graphic design includes adobe illustrator, adobe photoshop.

Animated Graphics Designing

  • Animated Graphics Designing is that type of Graphic Design in which there is only animated graphic work done and it may or may not involve the use of previously created static graphic design work. Essentially it means that the graphical work done in animated graphic design may or may not involve the use of previously created static graphic design but the end product is purely in animated form.
  • Examples of animated graphic design include animated logos, animated ads, animated screen overlays, face cams, character animations, animated gifs, etc.
  • The main software for this type of graphic desgin include Adobe After Effects, and Adobe Animate.
Here I’m attaching a short animation of a bird and dog that I’ve built in Adobe After Effects.

3. Is a Video Editor and a Graphic Designer both the same person?

No, Video Editor is the one who is involved in the work of editing videos using different video editing software like Adobe Premiere pro. But a Graphic Designer is the one who is involved in Graphic Design work e.g. static or animated using Graphic Designing software like Adobe Illustrator, Adobe After Effects, etc.

Even though they are both different fields still, they are interconnected to each other and one may need the other for different reasons. Often people try to learn both skills but of course it takes time to master both skills.

4. What are some of the best Graphic Design software?

5. Conclusion

Graphics Designing is actually divided into two main types, Static and Animated. Both of them include a very vast field of Graphic Design. Collectively, both these types have turned Graphic Design into a separate industry. Also, a video editor and a graphic designer are both different professionals but they are interconnected with each other for different tasks.

If somebody wants to learn Graphic Design then it is one of the best and fast-growing fields of today. But still, I’ll suggest you only go to this field if you have got a good designer mind. Otherwise, even if you are well versed in much Graphic Design software still you won’t be able to do much with that.
