After coming up with my idea i decided to take a look at what the dictionary states as what graphic design and art are. Here is what it says.
Shown here, there is clearly a difference between what is perceived as art and what graphic design is. Although the more mundane graphic designs for logos and corporate identity cannot be seen as art, there are many advertisements and logos where all the things described in this definition of art are necessary and visible. Graphic design requires skill and imagination to create a piece to meet the clients needs and look visually attractive.
