5 Common Misconceptions About Graphic Design

One of the consistently evolving art forms is graphic design. From traditional prints to simple Microsoft paint, and to having Adobe applications, I guess it’s safe to say that graphic design has evolved into a more competitive form of art. In this regard, numerous myths and misconceptions about graphic design now exist. Know the ten most common misconceptions about them and feel enlightened to know more than just the surface information. If you think you know what needs to be known about graphic design, then this might change your mind.

It is a “work of art”

Well, not totally. Graphic design is more than just a work of art, rather, there’s also some science involved in it as well. Graphic designers are different from artists in a way that they don’t need to express much emotion and they follow specific instructions and follow visual principles and fundamentals. Plus, they don’t completely have “artistic freedom” on the artwork (unless the client requests that they do). What usually happens is a meeting between clients and designers. They talk about the kind of design they want to apply and everything starts from there. 

Graphics are easy and fast to make

One of the most common misconceptions that people usually mistake is that graphic design is easy-peasy as one, two, three. No, it’s not. It takes a considerable amount of time to conceptualize, pair the right font, colors, and design execution that fits the brand, and at the same time will appeal to the target market. That alone takes up a lot of time and thought.

You need to be talented to enter the world of graphic designers

Don’t get us wrong, of course, you need creative juices still to make captivating visuals. However, graphic design is deemed as a skill. So technically, you don’t need to be born talented to enter the graphic design world, but rather, if you’re willing to dedicate the time and energy to learn it then you’ll be more than capable of making amazing designs soon! Don’t think you have the talent for it? Then have the commitment to learn it! 

You need fancy tools for graphic design

Professionals usually make use of high-end tools (with styluses and pads) for freehand drawing of elements. The downside of this is these tools are not of common as the ones that are free online. In return, you would have to tinker with it a bit in order for you to seamlessly create visual materials. To sum it up, fancy tools are “good to have” but keep in mind that you’ll still be able to create beautiful design templates with the use of free software online. 

It’s all about following design trends

Although design trends are fun to look at, graphic design doesn’t solely rely on them to make designs more likable. It’s safe to say that graphic artists are good to stay on the pulse of things but not to the extent of completely depending on them. Remember, design trends come and go as well. New elements are fun to add to designs but overdoing it will date your graphics a lot faster than doing it minimally.
