How does graphic design affect YOU personally?

Graphic Design is all around us. But what role does it play in your daily life? Does it affect the way you think, feel or react? Are you even aware of it? Please leave your comments...

  1. I am well aware of the designs and many different types of art around, possibly because I am an artist myself, I notice colours, shapes, movement (if any), and the way it wants people to respond to it, Take the new reeses minis as an example. On the bag the cups are so tiny, and you already know what they taste like, plus it shows that they come unwrapped in the package. Most people may not notice but it makes them think that they are convenient for those who want a snack they don't need to work at to get to. The colours and images on a tiny little package make people REACT and buy them. Or you can take the commercials that you see on tv for a new smartphone that's created every week :p don't the commercials show you how they work and what advantages and upgrades they have compared to the modern smartphones. Don't the commercials make you want to buy them? or at least take a look? I know i get interested. Graphic design is all around us whether it be in a news paper or on the big screens in times square. Either way people may not point out the errors/flaws or the good parts (like i do) but they make me think and react just as the company who creates them want me too.

  2. I tried to fill the "fish tank" but there's a limit on how much food you can place...

    And Graphic Design is used to market everything we buy/consume. Can you imagine a world where every box in the store was all white with black type that simply said what was in the box?

  3. Graphic design affects me directly only with what i buy,because no one wants the dollar store version of domo when you can have the same exact thing for twenty dollars more with a sticker saying what it is. Indirectly who knows how im personaly affected?

  4. Graphic Design is more then just art it's a sketch of something and I would rather look at something that's fully thought out and sketched then something that was cheap.

  5. I enjoy taking pictures and with the pictures I take, I also like to edit them. So things such as contrast, saturation, gradiant, and etc., play a big part in what I do to make my photos look their best.

  6. Graphics affect my daily life almost everyday. Their on my clothes, logos, food labels and brands of shoes. I notice it almost everyday and sometimes I think of it, but not usually.

  7. Graphics affects me so much everyday. It's everywhere and on almost everything. For example, on bildboards, t-shirts, and even paper towels.

  8. Graphics is literally everywhere. Even this website is graphics because it "uses pictures and words to juxtapose a message". While everyone is busy on their phones the apps and games were created by a designer. All of the Senior Idol posters we put in the hall today are beautiful graphics made by the beautiful 3rd block forensics class. By the way I like tina's paper towel observation, I noticed it too.

  9. We learned in graphics that graphic design follows us everywhere we go. We see posters advertising movies, new video games and events happening. We see a lot of these on tv. Graphics persuades us to buy the latest video game or buy clothes that are in style.

  11. Graphics is a strong influence in not only my life but everybody and anybodies lives. It is on the clothing we have on, on purses and billboards, even online(especially online).Graphics gives life a new meaning. When ads(graphically created) are posted, there is always a meaning behind it. No matter what a person does, they will be influenced by graphics in one form or another.

  12. I'm pretty sure Gaphic Design affects me personally . Mostly because it really has something to do with the way i think about a certain group or book or even product, that grabs my attention everyday .

  13. Graphic design effects everyone daily. When you to the grocery store, you are going to want the name brand foods. You quickly can see which foods are the bigger brands by their casing or logo. Or let's say you go to buy school supplies. Do you want the generic solid color or marble notebook, or do you want the notebook with your favorite musician or television show on it? Of course we all want the fancy notebook.

    ... And how did I know Brayerton was going to say something about Domo?

  14. Graphic design effects everyone everyday. Everywhere you go, i'm sure that there is graphics all around you. I often look at things like t-shirts, or other designs and think about it to try and figure out what is good and what is bad about it.

  15. Graphics is everywhere, and I'm sure it does affect my life in various ways. For example, it can affect the way I think of things, such as what I will be purchasing in a store.

  16. Graphics affects me everyday when I'm reminded to think of it in class. Especially most wednesdays when we do the "what's new in graphics". Other than that, graphics affects my purchases.Plain boring stuff compared to bright flashy stuff, I think i'll go with bright and flashy. In any other instances though I don't really think about it.

  21. Graphics affects me everyday and sometimes i don't even see it. For example when I'm getting ready for school and I pick out a shirt,then when we are discussing graphics in class. I notice that one of my shirts has graphics design on them and it's a good example of what this class is about.-Rob Parker

  22. Graphics is the something I do everyday and night. Graphics affects me by drawing pictures than putting them onto my computer. Graphics makes me feel alot better about myself. It makes me react like one day I will become a Graphic Designer.-Jen Gaunt

  23. Graphic Design effects me like if a design is peaceful and cool, then I would feel cool. Same thing for dreary design. - Daulton Nelson

  24. The time is 6:30 pm October 12th. I think that graphics plays a big role in my life. Graphics effects my life in many ways but I think seeing graphics around me everyday effects how I do my own designs. It does effect the way I see things and feel. If I see a design that I really like it inspires me and what I do and same thing goes for when I see a bad design it helps me know what not to do. Sometimes I think i know and I'm aware of it but other times I'm so used to it that sometimes I don't notice.

  26. Man, I think graphics affects me because when I buy something at the corner market on broadway it is all over the place, or when I'm rolling i look up and see a billboard. Know what I mean B? Real talk i don't even enjoy this blog jawn. Even when i buy watches, or chains the jeweler has their logo on the item.

    P.S. 5 up

  28. To me graphics is like the soul of every company or logo. It tells you that the person who made it put he's or her's time and effort into making it. Every little line and Detail into making it is a part of them just like me with my drawings.
