Here are some designers and artists that most certainly can do that. Love it!!!

Grafički dizajn

Gotovo na svakom koraku našu pozornost privlače radovi umjetnika koji putem slika, boja i oblika žele izraziti svoje misli, osjećaje i ideje. Ilustratori i grafički dizajneri umjetnici su koji svoj talent stavljaju u službu komercijalnih klijenata i prenose poruku koristeći kombinaciju tipografije, ilustracije i tiska, te  fotografiju, a u svrhu informiranja ili educiranja. Poruka mora biti oblikovana tako da bude razumljiva i prepoznatljiva, jer dizajn je upravo ono što stvara prvi dojam. Grafički dizajn je djelatnost koja pozdravlja originalnost i dočekuje kreativnost otvorenih ruku.

Grafički dizajneri moraju biti upoznati sa širokim rasponom umjetnosti, medija i stilova, i uvijek biti u toku s najnovijim trendovima, jer dizajn ima tendenciju promjene  isto kao i moda.

Vi ste možda jedan od mnogih pojedinaca koje pogled na logo, reklamu ili možda web stranicu navodi na pitanje kako je to napravljeno.
Iza svega toga stoji grafički dizajner
