Graphic design, also known as communication design, is the art and practice of planning and projecting ideas and experiences with visual and textual content. The form it takes can be physical or virtual and can include images, words, or graphics. The experience can take place in an instant or over a long period of time. The work can happen at any scale, from the design of a single postage stamp to a national postal signage system. It can be intended for a small number of people, such as a one-off or limited-edition book or exhibition design, or can be seen by millions, as with the interlinked digital and physical content of an international news organization. It can also be for any purpose, whether commercial, educational, cultural, or political.

Design that’s to be experienced in an instan...

Find the interview here 

Who are you :

My name is Axel Savvides and I live in Cyprus. I am a graphic and advertising designer, digital artist, amateur photographer and design software teacher.

Your current job :

I work as a freelance graphic designer at the “Studio” and as a design software teacher at Social Space Academy.

In which city are you located?

I am located in the city of Nicosia, Cyprus. The only divided capital in the world.

A word to define what kind of worker you are:

Experimental. I'm the kind of designer who can stay awake all night long to experiment with a new idea even if it does not turn out as I expected. I work better under pressure and I am always trying to learn new stuff and explore every new technology that can help me grow as an artist and as a professional.

What tools are...

Nice question!

In theory, any of those (plus others you haven't mentioned, like the open source alternatives Gimp and Inkscape) let you design a business card. If you are particularly proficient with one of them, you might want to consider going for that one to save time. While the three Adobe products have some similarities of use, they all require some learning time. If you have the time, I'd definitely recommend you pick one (spoilers: It's Illustrator).

InDesign's specific purpose is laying out printed materials. That's its strength, you can see it as a way of joining Photoshop and Illustrator elements into a new 'thing'. However, where it shines is with multiple pages (tools like text wrap are extremely powerful). Good thing is: It packages fonts and images all in one file, but file si...

Το Adobe Illustrator είναι το ποιο διαδεδομένο και το ποιο ισχυρό εργαλείο για την δημιουργία γραφικών, λογοτύπων, εταιρικής ταυτότητας, εντύπων όπως αφίσες, διαφημιστικά φυλλάδια, διαφημίσεις για περιοδικά ή και για το διαδίκτυο, σχεδιασμός συσκευασίας και ετικέτας προϊόντων, γραφικά για βίντεο και γενικά για οτιδήποτε τυπώνεται και όχι μόνο.

 

Είναι το βασικότερο εργαλείο των γραφιστών και απαραίτητο αν θα ετοιμαστεί κάτι το οποίο θα εκτυπωθεί. Τα γραφικά του Illustrator μπορούν να μεγεθυνθούν σε τεράστιες διαστάσεις χωρίς να χαλάσει καθόλου η ποιότητα τους.
