Visual Communicators Can Rejoice


Professional and amateur visual communicators can now find design guidelines based on the ways that people actually perceive and process visual information. The site, Understanding Graphics, is published by Connie Malamed, visual communications specialist and author of Visual Language For Designers. It features articles for anyone seeking design insights based on research evidence.

Understanding Graphics can help designers of all levels create graphics that are quickly perceived and understood, gain insights into visual language, and enhance and clarify their visual communications. Popular articles include: 5 Myths of Visual Communication; Themes for a Good Infographic, 21 Ways That Lines Communicate; and Information Display Tips.

According to publisher and author, Connie Malamed, “Visual communication is more important today than ever. It’s often the best way to quickly and efficiently communicate. But there are few design guidelines known to the public that are based on cognitive science. Understanding Graphics fills this gap. I see it as an extension of my book"

Unlike many sites written for readers with short attention spans, Understanding Graphics provides more depth. And readers seem to be pleasantly surprised, leaving such comments as, “Excellent post, really original and perfectly timed.” and “Once again another very useful and insightful article.”
