What topics can I ask about here?

Graphic Design is for questions targeted toward design professionals, students, and enthusiasts.

This includes questions about:

  • Graphic arts theory and history; "Why" we do what we do and not necessarily the "how" in logo design, fonts & typography, visual communication
  • Web design
  • Layout and printing
  • Illustration
  • 3D graphics
  • Digital media
    Examples: video, Adobe Flash

but not about:

  • Simple "How to" questions
  • Brainstorming or idea gathering
  • Technical questions related to video editing software
  • Web site architecture and development
    Examples: HTML that doesn't include CSS, server-side issues
  • Landscaping and architecture

For more help, see "What types of questions should I avoid asking?"

Please look around to see if your question has been asked before. It’s also OK to ask and answer your own question.

If your question is not specifically on-topic for Graphic Design Stack Exchange, it may be on topic for another Stack Exchange site. If no site currently exists that will accept your question, you may commit to or propose a new site at Area51, the place where new Stack Exchange communities are democratically created.
