Graphic Design/2D Design
Graphic Design (also 2D Design) is the art of digitally creating graphic contents and layouts. It can be sorted mainly into the categories of Pixel-based Graphic Design and Vector-based Graphic Design, although very often both techniques are used to create a graphic.
The industrial standard computer programs for Graphic design are Adobe Illustrator (vector) and Adobe Photoshop (pixel). However, there are also Open Source, license- and price-free programs to replace these, such as The GIMP and Inkscape.
