Often, people think that graphic designing is just creating art. However, graphic designing is such a pretty broad topic that designing is just a part of the profession. Digital processors, web, logo and broadcast designers, illustrators, animators, art directors, and visual journalists are some of the specific professions that falls under graphic designing.
