    According to me what I would like to say is:-

    -Graphic Design really focus on how to design graphically pleasing layouts. You would learn about color theory, typefaces, the relationship between design elements when placed on a page and just generally how to make things, either printed or displayed in another way, look appealing.


    -Web Design would require many of the skills of a good graphic designer but also, you'd need to learn how to write web pages. You'd probably start by learning HTML which is the scripting language web pages are made up of. You'd move on to current and updated languages like XML and cascading style sheets.

    According to me if you want to design the full flashed website then go for web designing. Web designing is more into website designing and graphics designing is more into creating graphics.......

    Web Vs Graphic designer


    In a logical world, both web designers and print designers would belong to the parent category of “graphic designer.” This is at least the way that I look at it. Are both disciplines not the practice of graphic design, just separated by medium?

    Hi Guys designing for web and print are two different experiences. Just because a designer is good at one doesn't mean they'll be good at the other. It's necessary to understand that web and print share many similarities, but they also have many differences.

    Graphic Design is usually related to print and art created via a computer. Web design is art strictly for the web, such as web templates, graphics etc.

    While Web design overlaps graphic design in the graphics and overall appearance and flow of the site, but web design also includes all the technical aspects of creating a website, such as the coding past basic layout.

    Thanks

    in graphic design, you wil be more into designing logos and such for companies. web design, you'll still be working for companies, but you'll mainly be working on making their websites. i dont know which one makes more money though.

    good luck!

    Web design is basically designing a webpage or a complete website. But graphic design incorporates everything, in which you design logos, images, banners, flash etc.
