In this study, interior spaces in which graphic design is used and seen are classified and sampled based on the idea that indoor places may reflect the individual and/or the general population. Additionally, in this study graphic design analysis of indoor places (photographic, illustrative and typographic) is investigated and advices are given. The aim is to emphasize the importance of the role of graphic design applications, which have an expressionist composition, in the gaining of functional and visual comfort and perception of the unseen aspects of ordinary places. From the impression gained during research, it is seen that graphic design has an effective role on the specification and the identification of the items in the place. It is observed that by means of the different experience and approach of graphic designers, ordinary places transform into places which carry a message or touch on a criticism. Furthermore, it is discussed that the effect of an indoor place graphic is related to the relationship of that graphic with the place itself. Especially, it is mentioned that the architects or interior architects who design the place should be in a good relationship with the graphic designer. In conclusion a place, which is a product of architecture, carries an aestetical and conceptual message with the graphic design; this concept leads to the discipline that can be named as interior graphics or environmental graphic design.
