Each day, millions of people read newspapers, books and magazines. They also surf the web, wear printed T-shirts, read billboards, receive printed advertisements in the mail and purchase products in printed packaging. What do they have in common? Graphic communications technology.
Graphic communications technology is the field that involves all of the people, equipment, materials and processes in designing, preparing and reproducing visual images, such as artworks, words, photographs and symbols in printed and digital formats.
The industry is large and diverse and employs more than 1 million people. This large and ever-changing industry is experiencing a wave of technological advances, which has meant new skills, new job opportunities and new challenges for graphic communications professionals.
