Graphic design serves as a method for improving society
through effective communication that makes complicated
things easier to understand and use. Design persuades and
infl uences public opinion, as is the case with propaganda
or political design; design instructs people, as in how to
navigate or assemble something; and design identifi es and
informs the public about a wide range of topics, from a
company and its products or services to which country has
the largest population. Through intelligent and thought-
provoking design, a designer is able to communicate
complex ideas in a simple and effective manner.
