Multimedia specialists combine the use of audio, video, graphics, and text to provide and disseminate information to others in an aesthetic manner. Often, their final output is distributed on CD ROMs or DVD, as catalogs, training sessions, books on disk, and tutorials. By combining graphics, audio files, animation and video components, the product of multimedia specialists can often make stronger impacts than printed guides or tutorials.

Multimedia specialists must have an understanding of the production of audio files, video, 2-D and 3-D animation design and computer graphics, as well as how to edit and enhance these files for use in a multimedia presentation. They must also be competent with computer hardware and software, not only on the production side, but on the user side as well, to insure the product will run properly on any given computer.

As multimedia moves to the Internet, many multimedia specialists may do work comparable to that of a webmaster. Graphic designers use a variety of print, electronic, and film media to create designs that meet client needs. Most graphic designers use computer software to generate new images. They design promotional displays and marketing brochures for products and services, develop distinctive company logos for products and businesses, and create visual designs of annual reports and other corporate literature.

Additionally, graphic designers, usually under the supervision of a design or art director, develop the overall layout and design of magazines, newspapers, journals, corporate reports, and other publications. Many graphic designers develop the graphics and layout of Internet Web sites. Graphic designers also produce the credits that appear before and after television programs and movies.
