And You Say Print Is Dead!

For years, we’ve heard people say “print is dead” and “it’s all about the web,” but as far as we can tell, print design isn’t going anywhere. From business cards to postcards, from invitations to menus, print design is far from dead, it’s alive and thriving. Just check out the showcase below if you don’t believe us.

    I think when they say “print is dead” they mean more in the magazine form. Not actually print processes like this which are amazing. If print is dead than pigs can fly! We are graphic artists, and the most important thing is manifesting our work to real life and being able to touch it and hold it. If we couldn’t what would be the point of what we do? I’m not a fan of web design or things created for the web. I understand the importance of it, but a young designer should know they shouldn’t feel obligated to learn everything. You want to be someone who specializes in something. In the real world we are doing things with print that iny computer screen designers could barely fathom. Giant wall graphic installations and vehicles, signage, t-shirt illustration ( Johny Cupakes) is a great example of how print will never be dead. His shirts sell out like iPhones. I think having a great web-designer is absolutely necessary and having an amazing website design is totally needed, but i think the terms have been coined wrong. I consider myself a Graphic Artist, not a Graphic Designer. I don’t lay pages out all day, i don’t design ads for magazines, or layout magazines. I design logos, posters, brand projects, illustrate for t-shirts. Great design principles must be applied to these, but i don’t think i’m a graphic designer. I’m a Graphic Artist.

      @charliesheenhardcore:disqus I’m not joking, I HAVE to use your quote to describe how I feel about my own career. You nailed it. d a n y a . d e s i g n e r @ g m a i l . c o m if you want me to attribute your real name/website. I mean, this is perfect. I’ve been calling myself a Graphic Artist for two years (Designer is a second line-item, I do mags & ads too ;)).
