What is Graphic Design?

what_is_graphic_design.jpg

I ran across a poster competition (after it was done) that asked the participants to submit a poster design that answers the question, “What is Graphic Design”. Looking over these submissions I noticed a very superficial explanation of graphic design. Is this the truth of graphic design? Is it really just about colors, type, and pixels or is it about something more? Please comment.

    I beleive Graphic Design is about Communication, making use of fonts, images and layouts to communicate a message to the audience.
