Graphic Design has an ever-increasing role in our daily lives it engages, informs, persuades, suggests and touches people every day. Design encompasses all of the collateral that lands in the hands of your potential clients, customers, or members. We aim to work with you to develop design that reflects who you are and who you aspire to be as well as taking careful attention to understanding your unique audience.

If you need graphic design for a poster, CD cover design, press advertising, logo or a sticker for the side of a bus, Kanaka can design and deliver on time and to spec. We will continue with revisions of your design until you are happy.

We always love hearing about new ideas. If you have a project you would like to discuss, please contact us.

Graphic Design History

Termed the phrase Graphic Design - William Addison DwigginsDid you know that the term graphic design was first  first coined by William Addison Dwiggins in 1922? And did you know that he also had very funny hair.  Back on track, graphic design has been around for 10’s of thousands of years. Cave walls depicting daily life of people, animals, even gods was used as a method of communicate with community and future  generation. Throughout history this has evolved into the art of stylising, problem solving and communication, through the use of images, space and words.

Graphic Design as a discipline is considered a subset of visual communication and communication design, but sometimes the term “graphic design” is used interchangeably with these due to overlapping skills involved.

Graphic designers use various methods to create and combine words, symbols, and images to create a visual representation of ideas and messages. A graphic designer may use a combination of typography, visual arts and page layout techniques to produce a final result. Graphic design often refers to both the process (designing) by which the communication is created and the products (designs) which are generated.
