Graphic design is the art of communication, styling, and problem-solving through the use of type, space and image. The field is considered a subset of visual communication and communication design, but sometimes the term “graphic design” is used interchangeably with these due to overlapping skills involved. Graphic designers use various methods to create and combine words, symbols, and images to create a visual representation of ideas and messages. A graphic designer may use a combination of typography, visual arts and page layout techniques to produce a final result. Graphic design often refers to both the process (designing) by which the communication is created and the products (designs) which are generated.
Common uses of graphic design include identity (logos and branding), publications (magazines, newspapers and books), print advertisements, posters, billboards, website graphics and elements, signs and product packaging. For example, a product package might include a logo or other artwork, organized text and pure design elements such as images, shapes and color which unify the piece. Composition is one of the most important features of graphic design, especially when using pre-existing materials or diverse elements.

Shown to the right is the artwork that we created as part of the initial marketing campaign for opening the new office. These posters were created using Adobe illustrator CC 2013. Working with a printer provider, the exact sizes of the A2 poster was input into Illustrator ensuring the format of the image met specific guidelines that were requested. Once we were happy with the designs, the files were compressed and sent out to the printer for production. They were delivered ready for use within a couple of days.
These examples were produced by us for our marketing needs and I think you will agree, they look great! The thing to remember about design work is that you are not limited to what can be done. Make an impact and let your imagination run riot. Anything is possible….
If you need something special designing to impress your customers or get out a very special message then give us a try. We have access to some the best graphics available on the market. We can either tailor these graphics to your individual needs or produce them from scratch. They can then be used in what ever format that you need and all licence free.
Mountain Goat in Windermere approached doIT Services to design a logo for their new business venture in Windermere. We designed the Windermere Information Centre Logo with the Lake District in mind. The logo incorporates all of main components that are offered by the Lake District, namely; water, green lush fields and the stunning mountain scenery. Included in the image is a small version of mountain goat that is a distinctive part of the Mountain Goat logo that all visitors will see on Mountain Goat Tours all around the Lake District.
doIT have also created the new logo for another business venture that Mountain Goat have. Yorkshire Dale Tours offers a similar service that Mountain Goat offer in Yorkshire.
