World Graphics Day is observed on April 27, 2017. The day was established by the International Council of Graphic Design Associations (Icograda), which was founded on April 27, 1963. World Graphics Day - also called World Graphic Design Day - is a chance to recognize communication design and its role in the world.
Graphic design is a creative process, one most often involving a client and a designer, and traditionally completed in conjunction with producers of form. Graphic design is undertaken to convey a specific message to a targeted audience, usually from the client, known as the 'brief'. The term "graphic design" can also refer to a number of artistic and professional disciplines that focus on visual communication and presentation.
Various methods are used to create and combine words, symbols, and images to create a visual representation of ideas and messages. A graphic designer may use a combination of typography, visual arts and page layout techniques to produce a balanced, focused and symmetrical final result. (With material from: Wikipedia)
