They establish a project`s goals and objectives, analyze needs/problems, develop visual solutions, and prepare conceptual presentations for client approval, which ranges from simple sketches to full colour layouts. Designers develop concepts in consultation with clients and work with photographers, illustrators, programmers, developers and other creative professionals to produce print and interactive work. Graphic designers focus on print media including brochures, logos, corporate identity materials, promotional posters, signage, packaging, publication design, as well as web design, motion graphics and design for interactive media.
