Graphic design can be a powerful tool. It has an important part in transferring information to its reader because the purpose of the content must be comprehensible to the target group. For example, if you want to let others believe that a cookie is delicious because you need to sell it, you can design it that way so people will believe it.
Graphic design can also be used to manipulate the truth. As a designer you can choose what elements you want to show and which one you want to hide and the most important part, you can connect an experience to it. It's interesting how many different perspectives a campaign for a cookie can have. Draw in 15 minutes as much as possible design perspectives of a cookie. By doing such a simple task you discover how easy it is to create new ways to represent a cookie.
