Non-designers Essential Glossary of Design Terms

Every industry, business and profession has its own language and that language can leave you feeling confused and result in lots of misunderstandings.  We thought you might find our Design Terms Glossary useful whether you are using the training in our Members’ section or dealing with a graphic designer directly.






CMYKYellow is one of the colours in the CMYK printing process.

It’s Hex code is #FFFF00

You !


Yes, really!

You are the most important element in the Graphic Design mix.

Whether you choose to go with a design firm or decide to become your own graphic designer, without you your ideas will never become real, the designs in your head will never be designed, the promotional campaigns and social media interaction you would love to instigate will never happen.

Never doubt that you are the key person in your business.

Make sure your branding reflects your ideas, your personality, your business aspirations and your vision.

Be unique – Be yourself!
