Popular graphic design tools

Through my previous blog, you know what graphic design and specializations are; it’s helpful to familiarize yourself with the graphic design tools that help get the job done. A sketchbook is one of the most basic and least expensive tools designers use. Graphic designers often sketch ideas or rough drafts on paper before turning to a computer to complete the process.

Computers and design software are essential in today’s digital climate, even if you design for print. The type of computer you need is based on preference, but I recommend Mac book Pro for software; Adobe products such as Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign are mainstays in graphic design.

Ideas and inspiration are what a graphic designer needs most. “You need to have a solid concept as the foundation of your design and communication.” Graphic designers gain inspiration from the world around them, so if you are worried you aren’t creative enough, go outside, bounce ideas off your peers, or seek views from the internet. Plenty of inspiring graphic design blogs can help get your creative juices flowing.
