Common uses of graphic design include identity (logos and branding), publications (magazines, newspapers and books), advertisements, posters and product packaging.
Graphic Design II: Multimedia designers integrate audio, animation, graphics and video into presentations for CDs, DVDs, television programmes and websites. They work for advertising agencies, television stations, web development companies and other media companies that develop multimedia presentations. Multimedia presentations are often created to educate or entertain and a multimedia designer must be able to produce a cohesive look and theme to achieve these goals.
