If you are an aspiring graphic designer in Dubai, knowledge of the right tools could help you get ahead in your career. Graphic design is about more than being able to draw. In fact, you do not need to be an artist to be a good graphic designer, though a creative side does go a long way. Many aspects of graphic design do not require a person to be skilled at drawing or painting. With the right tools, you can handle various facets of this wide and upcoming industry.
A number of institutes offer courses for students in multiple graphics software. These courses are aimed at different levels of proficiency from beginner courses for aspirants to advanced courses for experienced professionals. The choice of course largely depends on which field you are interested in, for different software are created for different tasks. Brief descriptions given below illustrate the wide range of uses and differences between various tools.
Indesign is desktop publishing software used for designing professional layouts for print or digital publishing material. These include magazines, brochures, books, e-books, interactive PDFs, etc. It covers many aspects like managing and formatting text and objects, enhancing document design, etc.
After Effects (AE) is a powerful video editing tool used for creating motion graphics and special effects. It can be used for animating both in 2D and 3D. It is widely used in post production work for film and television.
Illustrator and CorelDraw are vector graphics editors. Vector graphics use 2D geometrical information like lines, curves and points to create images. These images can be magnified without causing any pixilation or distortion. It is used to design logos, posters, etc.
Photoshop is the most popular and recognisable professional image editor. However, Photoshop’s strength lies in its ability to edit 2D raster images, which are essentially the opposite of vector images. These include photographs, images and similar media.
3ds Max is, strictly speaking, not a just graphics design tool but rather a 3D computer graphics programme that is used for 3D animations, models, games and images. It finds widespread use in various industries – 3D graphics design, engineering, architecture, animators, pre and post production in film and television, etc.
Knowledge in more than just one kind of software comes in quite handy as design work often involves multiple tools. For instance, logos designed in Illustrator and images edited in Photoshop can be used to create brochures in Indesign. While it is rare for a single professional to handle every aspect of a single project, freelancers and small organisations often hire people who can multi-task effectively.
