Visual Language For Designers

visual-language-for-designers“It’s scientific but not dull and artistic but not fluffy.”

Within every picture is a hidden language that conveys a message, whether it is intended or not. This language is based on the ways people perceive and process visual information. By understanding visual language as the interface between a graphic and a viewer, designers and illustrators can learn to inform with accuracy and power.

Visual Language For Designers shows visual communicators how to design graphics that are effective and comprehensible. It presents visual guidelines based on the cognitive science of how people perceive, process and understand pictures.
