Multimedia art typically works with Animation and motion graphics such as for web, power point, and flash presentations. Graphic designers tend to lean toward print and agency work for ads, packaging, and informational design for static or still work, used for print.

Back in the year 2000, I got my Multimedia Certificate. It included Graphic Design, Web Design, and Motion Graphics (which is Animation & Video Production). Multimedia refers to any medium with which you get your point across. A painter's canvas is a medium. Television is a medium. A movie screen is a medium. Your computer screen is a medium. Paper is a medium. A person with the power to communicate with spirits of the dead or with agents of another world or dimension is a medium. ;)

Thanks for this. People have lost an understanding of the difference between design and medium.
