    What do you think they are? Did you research the terms at all before posting? – Zach Saucier Jan 19 '17 at 12:40

The main purpose of graphic design is basically to send a message to an audience or to persuade them. They send the message by communicating visual information. A professional graphic designer is mostly working on layout, typography, branding and image development.

Illustration is a more creative work/visualization. Illustrators use drawings or picture to represent the text on the page or decorate it, also they can sometimes do both design work and illustration but not vice versa.
