Computer-generated imagery portal

A computer generated image of a modern single-lens reflex camera used in photography, another key imaging technique.

The most widely recognised form of computer-generated imagery are three-dimensional (3D) animations seen in movies and commercials. This term can also apply to other forms of computer generated images such as modern Graphs, Engineering drawings, Information graphics, Diagrams and Graphic designs.

Technological advances and the productivity of computer aided design (CAD) and drawing techniques relative to more traditional forms of design like technical drawing has seen a steady increase in the use of these techniques over time and this trend looks set to continue.

Graphic design is a creative process, one most often involving a client and a designer, and traditionally completed in conjunction with producers of form (printers, sign makers, etc.). In the 21st century, however, graphic design may be applied directly to websites, eliminating the need for an intermediary. Graphic design is undertaken to convey a specific message (or messages) to a targeted audience, usually from the client, known as the 'brief'. The term "graphic design" can also refer to a number of artistic and professional disciplines that focus on visual communication and presentation. The field as a whole is also often referred to as Visual Communication or Communication Design. Various methods are used to create and combine words, symbols, and images to create a visual representation of ideas and messages. A graphic designer may use a combination of typography, visual arts and page layout techniques to produce a balanced, focused and symmetrical final result. Graphic design often refers to both the process (designing) by which the communication is created and the products (designs) which are generated.
