I'm in graphic design also.
I would say that in a prosaic way, these fields differ in the number and kinds of dimensions used in our works.
So graphics deals in 2-space, architecture in 3.
Graphic design is now adding some new dimensions, particularly symbolism and animation. So I would say that the graphic artist must increasingly move through four dimensions.
But architecture will rapidly catch up; the temporal element in structure, whether in terms of history or moveable elements, not to mention the building process, means architects must deal in five or six dimensions.
And in either profession, there are other hidden dimensions, as well.
