I'm a Graphic designer and a pencil drawing artist. Whatever I make, I put something like this: © Vikas Kumar arts & designs in the footer of drawing/image and never worried about it. Today, I just thought about it and found I've seen people using art/design instead of arts/designs

So I'm really wondering. Which of the following is correct in this case?

  1. © Vikas Kumar Art & Design
  2. © Vikas Kumar Arts & Designs

    I was not trying to vandalize your title by the edit I was trying to make the question clearer.

    I rejected because it was more about art/design as a "suffix" for a name. So name was important before it. Otherwise the difference could be understood from dictionary or other answers.

I'd recommend Art / Design

According to Cambridge Dictionary


(1) [ U ] the making of objects, images, music, etc. that are beautiful or that express feelings

(2) [ U ] the activity of painting, drawing, and making sculpture

(3) [ U ] paintings, drawings, and sculptures

[ U ] meaning that it is UNCOUNTABLE: noun with no plural form.


(1) [ C ] a drawing or set of drawings showing how a building or product is to be made and how it will work and look

(2) [ U ] the art of making plans or drawings for something

Notice that design maybe COUNTABLE but I've highlighted both (2) options.

Art & Design indicates that you have two main activities that already imply the production of multiple results (drawings, pictures, images).

  • By design, I mean digital work i.e., Graphic Design. still same answer?
