This question already has an answer here:
EDIT 27 FEB (Yisela): I edited the title to reflect the latest conversations about including Art (fine arts, illustration) in the scope of the site. These are not necessarily the only names, all of those cited in the answers are valid candidates.
If you haven't participated in the thread yet, now is the moment to do so (older answers - Check you still think the same!). We have also been talking about this on the chat. Feel free to drop by and leave your opinion there. Y.-
The question Should we increase this SE's Scope? was asked a while back, but it strikes me that the scope is already larger than the name:
Graphic Design is for questions targeted toward 2D design professionals, students, and enthusiasts.
This includes questions about:
- Graphic arts theory and history; "Why" we do what we do and not necessarily the "how" in logo design, fonts & typography, visual communication
- Web design
- Layout and printing
- Digital media // Examples: video, Adobe Flash
'Graphic art and design' is the best title I can come up with to encompass this scope.
I also think it's time 3d graphics were officially brought into scope.

For illustrators, animators, graphic designers, painters, pixel artists, comic artists, concept artists, print makers, and visual designers in both traditional and digital media.
