What is digital design?

 

Digital design is a service for businesses that refers to visuals that are designed and produced for viewing on a wide range of screen types. Digital design combines graphic design skills with digital technology to create numerous types of digital marketing products. This can range from email campaigns to 2D animations for social media, websites or presentations.

 

In simple terms any design that has physically been printed is graphic design, and design that appears on screens such as websites or apps is digital design.

 

Here is a non-exhaustive list of design project differences:

 

Digital design

Website design / elements

Banner adverts

Email designs

Social media graphics

Digital illustrations and infographics

Animations and motion graphics

Graphic design for print

Brochures / catalogues

Logo design

Business cards

Packaging design

Printed advertising

Vehicle graphics

The advantage for digital design services

 

The main advantage of digital design over graphic design is that more analytical data can be tracked through performance metrics such as shares, likes, clicks, subscribes etc. It is common in digital advertising to create several design variations to track and compare which design performs better. This is known as A/B testing.

 

It is also worth considering that people interact with digital design differently to print; such as clicking, downloading, zooming etc. Therefore digital designers may have to consider the usability of products (how people interact with it), especially when designing websites, landing pages or apps. This is known as ‘User Experience design’ or UX Design for short.
