Today I will explain the question with a good answer is “which of the following is not true about graphic design”. This question is very popular and is often asked by a graphic designer or teacher or in a questionnaire. Different types of options are given in this question and all options are part of graphic design, but one option is not directly related to the term “graphic design”. We need to find the right option with a good explanation.
Which of the following statements about graphic design is false?
I have provided several “Which of the following questions is false about graphic design” questions with several options. Now if we focus on all your 4 options, we can find out which of the following is not true about graphic design?
A. It uses symbols and phrases that are easy to understand
B. Both lithography and screen printing are subcategories of graphic design.
C. Graphic design is debated by art critics as to whether it is a true art form or not.
D. Typography is always important when creating a graphic design piece
Option D is the correct answer to the question “which of the following is not true about graphic design?” Now let’s see why option D
Now if we go into the deeper explanation of the graphic design and try to find the direct relation of each option, we can easily understand which option is not directly related to “graphic design”!
How are symbols and phrases related to graphic design?
Symbol And Phrases Are Directly Related To Graphic Design. If we check option A number one, it says that graphic design uses symbols and phrases that are easy to understand. It’s true. Symbols and phrases are the most important part of graphic design. Nearly 70% of the designs are based on symbols and phrases. A symbol or a phase expresses the underlying meaning of each project. Gives life to a project.
A symbol or a phrase can express the inner meaning or purpose of any design. So you can easily understand how a symbol or a phrase can say anything about a specific design, so in this topic “which of the following is not true about graphic design” option number 1 refers to graphic design and the option is correct. Here I will give another example of a symbol and a phrase.
“Cats Make Me Happy……Happiness Is” This is an expression and you can find the “LOVE” symbol in the design and usually this type of image is used on clothes. I think this is the perfect example of a symbol and a phrase. Hope you understand now. So we find that our option “A” of “which of the following is not true about graphic design” is true.
How is lithography and screen printing subcategories of graphic design?
Lithography and screen printing are subcategories of graphic design
Both lithography and screen printing design forms are used by modern artists (POP ARTISTS). If we discuss what lithography is and what screen printing is, we can determine whether they are subcategories of graphic design or not!
What is lithography?
Lithography is a form of printing that uses a stone or metal with a smooth surface to print images with receptive ink. Hence, it is a form of graphic design and belongs to the subcategory of graphic design.
What is screen printing?
Screen printing is a method where an image is moved using forced ink and the medium is silk or mesh. This is a kind of printing technique. Therefore, screen printing is related to graphic design and belongs to the subcategory of graphic design.
After reading the above topic about lithography and screen printing, we can say that lithography and screen printing are subcategories of graphic design. Therefore, we find that our ‘B’ option of “which of the following is not true about graphic design” is true.
Graphic design is discussed by art critics
It’s true. Graphic design is discussed by art critics. The designer or artist discussed this. Some of them (artists) say it is a real art form and some artists say it is not.
Graphic design is a huge area and this is the reason to create the debate. Based on some of its categories, an artist said it is a real art form where an artist or designer directly points out that the term “real art” is not directly related to graphic design. It is not a question of who will win this debate! But the truth is that graphic design is debated by art critics.
So Option ‘C’ is true for the question “Which of the following is not true about graphic design”.
Which of the following statements is not true about graphic design – TYPOGRAPHY?
Typography uses words to create graphic design. Typography is not always important for creating graphic design. If you are a designer, you can easily understand that typography is not always necessary to design an image. However, typography is most commonly used in a design, but it is not a necessary part of a design.
There are many designs that you will find where typography is not used, so how meaningful can it be to create an image! I think you understand what I mean!
If the ‘D’ option only says that typography is used in graphic design, we can consider it, but it has the word ‘significant’ used, so we can’t consider it. If we want to use the word “meaningful,” we rewrite the sentence and write “Quality image that has its inner expression and meaning that makes sense for graphic design creation.”
So after discussing the question “Which of the following is not true about graphic design”, we found our answer. We found that our ‘D’ option of “which of the following is not true about graphic design” is wrong. So option D is the answer.
