The Difference between Graphic Design, Art & Communication(technical)

Graphic design is aimed at producing a result under specific constraints. Art on the other hand doesn't need to follow any constraint and has more freedom in its approach to a result. Communication(technical) like graphic also has a specific constraint , yet communication is a more focused area than graphic design.(Technical) Communication needs to follow a set pattern whereas Graphic design may or may not follow one, yet they both are directed at an agenda. Graphic design and Communication require people with certain knowledge whereas art can be done by anybody and everybody.

“Art is something you piss on” said Marcel Duchamp, yet art probably has a deeper impact on lives than Graphic design or Communication do. It is only over the years though that people who work in graphics get recognition for their work.
