Graphic designers combine art and technology to communicate ideas. The achieve this through images, the layout of websites and printed pages. Graphic designers work with both text and images. They often select the type, font, size, colour, and line length of headlines, headings, and text. Graphic designers also decide how images and text will go together on a print or webpage. When using text in layouts, graphic designers collaborate closely with writers who choose the words.  Thus they can decide whether the words to be put into paragraphs, lists, or tables. Through the use of images, text, and colour, graphic designers can transform statistical data into visual graphics and diagrams. So graphic designers can make complex ideas more accessible.
