Or Hannah Salamone, if you like vowels.

I'm a graphic designer who lives for the organization of chaos. 
If you ask me, "Why graphic design?" I will undoubtedly tell you that design is the math of art (and I have always loved both math and art). Now, while that may not resonate with you or your previous knowledge, I do have my proof. Every pica is important when it comes to the final impact of a design, just as every number, down to the smallest decimal value, is important in a math equation. It must be calculated and evaluated with the end goal in mind. You can always check your work — did you reach the correct audience, achieve the intended click-through rate on a digital ad, eliminate confusion with signage, etc. — and rework the problem if it doesn't come out correctly. You show your work along the way and present it to anyone who has doubts about the answer, inviting them to find errors and adjusting for them if they are found. You will also learn that there are multiple ways to solve a problem. Faster methods tend to rely on extensive previous knowledge, but the slower methods are just as useful because the ultimate goal is to find the correct answer and prove that you are indeed correct.
Design is math that visual learners can understand and everyone can appreciate.
