    A graphic designer is a professional who assembles together images, typography, or motion graphics to create a piece of design.

    An illustrator is one who writes, draws skillfully to give a visual representation that corresponds to the content of the idea.

    An illustrator is an artist who specializes in enhancing writing concepts by providing a visual representation that corresponds to the content of the associated text or idea. The illustration may be intended to clarify complicated concepts or objects that are difficult to describe textually, which is the reason illustrations are often found in children's books.

    A graphic designer is a professional within the graphic design and graphic arts industry who assembles together images, typography, or motion graphics to create a piece of design. A graphic designer creates the graphics primarily for published, printed or electronic media, such as brochures and advertising. They are also sometimes responsible for typesetting, illustration, user interfaces, web design, or take a teaching position. A core responsibility of the designer's job is to present information in a way that is both accessible and memorable.

    Graphic Designers are professionals who plan, evaluate, and generate visual clarifications to communications problems. They create the most efficient methods to get messages across in print and electronic media using color, style, design, camera work, animatronics, and various print and presentation techniques. On the other hand, Illustrators are experts who have visualization that is more artistic. They combine design, drawings, pictures and creative skills to visually decorate or represent a text on a particular page.

    Both graphic designers and illustrators do visual work, but the essential difference is that a graphic designer works on design structures and an illustrator does more drawing. When considering the two careers, assess your skills and interests. If you like making websites, coding and detail-oriented work, graphic design might suit you. If you prefer drawing, illustrating concepts and creating logos, illustration is a better fit.

    Illustrators have expertise in drawing, freehand art, and coloring while generally graphic designers use art to communicate a concise message they want to communicate and might employee an illustrator to help create elements that solve the design problem.
