The Language of Visual Design

Previous sections have compared visual design, viewed as a language, to written language. Future sections will examine visual design’s symbols (words) and grammar (principles of symbol placement and arrangement) in some detail. As a preview of where we’re headed on this journey, I came across the following 5-minute video. When you open the the link to the video, note that the video has a full screen option (right click in the main image before running the video for the full screen option). Click the main image to run the video.

As I said – just a preview – we’ll cover all of this and more in future sections of this course.
