Abstract

The concept of Graphic Communication is characterized by the technology that is infused with information and communication technology which cover any product that stores, retrieves, manipulates, transmits or receive information that helps in disseminating knowledge through graphic device visuals. With structured and semi-structured interview guides the researcher examined the impact of Graphic Communications in the print and electronic media in Ghana. The scope of the study was focused on the Accra Metropolis using twelve media houses in the Metropolis. The sample survey was used to collect data from a portion of the entire population providing a fair representation of the study population. The major findings that emerged from the study are that the plethora nature of Graphic Communication elements has influenced the ethics and practice of media since its introduction in the Gold Coast. Everybody is now moving to what is called “mediamorphosis”. In effect these new platforms are changing viewership and readership on regular basis. This change is occurring quickly and in significant ways, and it is retooling and redirecting the practice of media in Ghana. Finally, the study suggests that in order to comprehend the visual culture of today’s image saturated society, one needs to accept the aporia of technological influences on both print and electronic media.
