When we talk about images or visuals that have an immediate effect on the viewer are the kind of graphic designs that have dated back many years ago. Since ages, we have seen designers create posters or logos, advertisements, packages, pamphlets, brochures and much more. Here the designers arrange text, form images and attempt to bring about as much graphic effect that has been possible depending on the kind of technological advances at any given point of time.
We have also seen motion graphics that are created with the purpose of creating an impact over a fixed span of time. These kinds of motion graphics are most commonly experienced in a movie when the credits part is on, or many videos online have similar effects.
Even the designing of books and covers for colored magazines have a history behind it. The experience of designing in such cases is often expected to occur over a period of time. However the effects in cases of books and magazines are never limited to creating objects.
In order to create the required visual effect along with expression of the concept with an aesthetic touch a designer will make use of many elements of graphic designs.
