The culture of the world is highly dynamic. The rapid change that is experienced has been related to many factors. To be able to grasp the extent to which graphical design influences the culture, it is important to understand what the term culture means. Culture can be studied to loosely mean just how of life for a particular group. However, there have been more detailed definitions of the term. This study seeks to offer an insight into how culture inter- relates with graphic design while mainly inclining on the impact of graphic design on culture. The paper addresses this issue by first understanding the two variables; culture and graphic design, and then reviewing the many times when the culture has been influenced by graphical design. The analysis also touches briefly on the dependency of graphical design on the culture of people.
