Graphic design is a creative process. C9DeZine often refers to both the process (designing) by which the communication is created and the products (designs) which are generated. C9DeZine covers following area for graphics design.
Visual arts: Before any graphic elements may be applied to a design, the graphic elements must be originated by means of visual art skills. These graphics are often (but not always) developed by a graphic designer.
Typography: This is the art, craft and techniques of type design, modifying type glyphs, and arranging type. Type glyphs (characters) are created and modified using a variety of illustration techniques. The arrangement of type is the selection of typefaces, point size, line length, leading (line spacing) and letter spacing.
Page layout: The page layout aspect of graphic design deals with the arrangement of elements (content) on a page, such as image placement, and text layout and style. Beginning from early illuminated pages in hand-copied books of the Middle Ages and proceeding down to intricate modern magazine and catalogue layouts, structured page design has long been a consideration in printed material.
Interface design: SMany graphic designers have become involved in interface design. This has included web design and software design, when end user interactivity is a design consideration of the layout or interface.
Printmaking: C9DeZine use the process of making artworks by printing on paper and other materials or surfaces. Except in the case of monotyping, the process is capable of producing multiples of the same piece, which is called a print. Each piece is not a copy but an original since it is not a reproduction of another work of art and is technically known as an impression.
