Graphic design is the most ubiquitous of all the arts.  Graphic design is everywhere, touching everything we do, everything we see, and everything we buy:  we see it on billboards and in books, taxicabs, on web sites, cereal boxes, and even the hang tags on the clothes we buy... the list goes on and on.
Graphic Design is complex combinations of words and pictures, numbers and charts, photographs and illustrations that, in order to succeed, demand the clear thinking of a particularly thoughtful individual who can orchestrate these elements so they all add up to something distinctive, or useful, or playful, or surprising, or subversive, or somehow unforgettable.

Graphic design is a popular art and also a handy art.  It is the art of visualizing ideas.

In order to have successful designs, you have to have certain elements.  To become a booming designer, it is

            essential that you learn how to use them.

Make the viewers eyes move around the page instead of going off the page.
When you have similar elements, the viewer may think something is missing or doesn't look right.  For example:  Use different fonts and colors that compliment one another, also light and darkness.
The way our eyes see images is crucial to design.  Placing images just anywhere can cause chaos and confusion.
Spatial Relationships:
Group related images and contents together so there is no confusion on what you are trying to present.
