Graphic design is the applied art of arranging image and text to communicate a message. It may be applied in any media such as print, digital media, motion picture, animation, product decoration, packaging, signs, identities, etc. Graphic design as a practice can be traced back to the origin of the written word, but only in the late 19th century did it become identified as a separate entity.

Graphic design: IKEA–commercial by Art Lebedev
The practice or profession of designing print or electronic forms of visual information, as for an advertisement, publication, or website.
[Houghton Mifflin, 2000]

the art or profession of visual communication that combines images, words, and ideas to convey information to an audience, esp. to produce a specific effect.
[Infoplease, 2004]

Trying to communicate complex information by forming a visually intuitive representation graphic design turns out to be a special case of information visualization, yet it tends to ignore the practical doctrine of form follows function — the sole guideline for InfoVis — and tries to produce not only useful, but even more aethetically satisfying (stylish) visual impressions.
