What does graphic design mean and is it art?

I am just curious what graphic design is. Is it art? Is it a process? Is it on the same respect level as a painter or a marketing director?

You'll learn more than you ever wanted to know about graphic design here:

In my opinion, graphic design *can* be art... if the piece itself is artistic. (I do graphic design, fine art, and marketing.)

There is a great deal of change in the field right now. I think it's very exciting. Over the last few decades, we've seen more and more design museums opening across the country, and more fine arts museums are mounting design exhibitions.

I see the elite end of the design spectrum being received as fine art. The lower end of it is still seen as amateurish, desktop publishing drivel.

Hi,

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 of the communication can be physical or virtual, and may include images, words, or graphic forms.

Graphic Designing is basically a way to express your feelings, Talent in visual form using software or by hand. Graphics Designing is also an art because it is unique like hand art in which everything created manually using your mind, ideas and concept. For hand art, the artists mostly used canvas paper and for graphic designing the graphics designers use different software like Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop and Canva.
