Graphic design is a very different field to graphic design.
There’s a lot of jargon around graphic design, which I’ve covered in detail in previous posts on this blog.
However, if you want to understand how graphic design works, there’s really only one place to start: with a graphic novel.
I’ve written a series of posts on graphic novel design for the past few years, and they’re definitely worth checking out if you’re interested in graphic design as a profession.
You might also be interested in these posts: How Graphic Design Can Transform Your Life.
If you want more detail on how to make graphic design a career, I’d recommend this book.
If I missed anything, let me know in the comments.
I hope this post has helped.
