Are you new to graphic design and looking for a resource to help launch you in to the field? Are you a seasoned pro just looking for the latest reviews of products that would better help your business? Well if the answer is yes to either of these questions, it is time you logged on to abc About.com’s xyz Graphic Design Page and took a good look around.

abc About.com xyz was started in 1997 and has grown into a huge, creditable source of information for a variety of interests and subjects. Their Graphic Design section has a mind-blowing amount of information for everyone from the casual designer to the industry professional. Some of the things you can expect to find on the web site:
. Tutorials
. Schools
. Design tips & tricks
. Buyer’s guides
. Product and news articles
. Discussion forums
. Free clipart
. They even have a design center where you can submit work for critique.

There are a lot of web services out there that claim to offer great information but fall short. This something you won't have to worry about when you go to http://graphicdesign.about.com. They even have links to some top notch design firms who are ready to work with the average Joe.

So if you are looking a one stop resource on the web for the graphic design field, no matter what the question, http://graphicdesign.about.com/ should definitely be your next stop.
