Visuals for Information
Rune Pettersson 1988

Page 90: According to Lanners (1973) we only see the things that affect us emotionally. Everything else is ignored. When we look at a picture, we first discover the cues we already recognise.

Page 93: Our western society is domination by the written word and [is] extremely quadrangular. It is a society in which bureaucrats occupy quadrangular cells in such a way that creative and intellectually lively people are perceived as disturbing and disruptive features of the prevailing order. New ideas are effectively stifled. This leads to stagnation, industrial crises and breakdown of the social fabric.

Findings from visual literacy research

Knowledge of graphic design, information design, visual communication, visual language, and visual literacy are important for our ability to produce messages that work. Eight groups of ID students were asked to rank how they perceive the importance of 50 research findings related to sender processes, text design, image design, graphic design, and receiver processes. The result is a “set of guidelines” helping us to improve quality of information materials.
