While Graphic Design as a discipline has a relatively recent history, with the term 'graphic design" first coined by William Addison Dwiggins in 1922, graphic design-like activities span the history of humankind: from the caves of Lascaux, to Rome's Trajan's Column to the illuminated manuscripts of the Middle Ages, to the dazzling neons of Ginza. In both this lengthy history and in the relatively recent explosion of visual communication in the 20th and 21st centuries, there is sometimes a blurring distinction and over-lapping of advertising art, graphic design and fine art. After all, they share many of the same elements, theories, principles, practices and languages, and sometimes the same benefactor or client. In advertising art the ultimate objective is the sale of goods and services. In graphic design, "the essence is to give order to information, form to ideas, expression and feeling to artifacts that document human experience."

One of the clearest distinctions between the two concepts was presented by Walter Tracy in his Letters of Credit. These ? 'two aspects of a type' ? are ? 'fundamental to its effectiveness. Because the common meaning of "legible" is "readable" there are those ? even some professionally involved in typography ? who think that the term "legibility" is all that is needed in any discussion on the effectiveness of types. But legibility and readability are separate, though connected aspects of type. Properly understood ? the two terms can help to describe the character and function of type more precisely than legibility alone. ? In typography we need to draw the definition ? of legibility ?to mean the quality of being decipherable and recognisable ? so that we can say, for example, that the lowercase h in a particular old style italic is not legible in small sizes because its in-turned leg makes it look like the letter b; or a figure 3 in a classified advertisement is too similar to the 8. ? In display sizes, legibility ceases to be a serious matter; a character that causes uncertainty at 8 point size is plain enough at 24 point.'
