Principles of Designing

A graphic design is a drawing or layout for the arrangement of an object, concept or system on a paper or other surface, or for its actual implementation in the shape of a machine, model, symptom or implement, or the outcome of that layout or design in the shape of a finished product, machine, process or application. The word “graphic” comes from the Greek word “gimmas” (mutable), “design” (determined by an artist’s skill) or” graphe” (a tool used in shaping). The word “graphic” is therefore related to both drawing and painting. The discipline of graphic design was first recognized as a separate academic field of study in the early twentieth century. The invention of the pen, the roller, the press, and the pencil have contributed to the development of graphic design.


In order to have a good graphic design, there are some important designing principles that you should follow. For example, a user experience designer must know what the users need and want. The user experience designer is in charge of determining what the end users will experience while using the product, and designing products or systems that satisfy these needs. You, as a designer, must also determine what the end users will experience and why they will not experience it. This understanding will guide you to choose the most appropriate design processes and product models for users and clients and will also help you to understand the basic design principles such as perspective, typography, illustration, figure and layout, filmstrip drawing, and shadowing.

Another principle that you should follow is to think like a designer, and use design patterns to develop your ideas. Designers spend their whole careers, learning about different design patterns. And then, when they get a chance to apply their knowledge to a client’s project, they should be able to successfully implement it in a reliable way. In this case, we can say that the user experience designer has to adapt his/her concept of design to the specific needs of the company. Designers also play an important role in making the products user-friendly; however, different designers have different perspectives on how to make products more user-friendly.
