You gain access to simple techniques for collecting, analyzing, and applying information. Crowe and Laseau examine the relationship between note-taking, visualization, and creativity. They give practical guidance on how to develop: * Visual acuity--the ability to see more in what you experience * Visual literacy--expressing yourself clearly and accurately with sketches * Graphic analysis--using sketches to analyze observations Numerous examples demonstrate some of the many uses of visual notes. They help you develop a keener awareness of environments, solve design problems, and even get more out of lectures and presentations.

Art, Design and Visual Culture:An Introduction. Auflage 1998 Malcolm Barnard
Effective visual communication is not an accidental occurrence, but rather is the result of serious intention on the part of the designer to balance all aspects of the design. This is often achieved through careful application of proportion based on guiding principles that are here detailed; the golden ratio, ´divine proportion´ and the Fibonacci sequence. By way of 1200 full-colour illustrations, the way in which modern design is utilising these ancient principles is explored.
Easy access to computer graphic tools has turned many of us into either amateur or professional image producers. But without a basic understanding of visual language, a productive dialogue between producers and consumers of visual communication is impossible. Visual Grammar can help speak and write about visual objects and their creative potential, and better understand the graphics. It is both a primer on visual language and a visual dictionary of the fundamental aspects of graphic design. This book is dealing with every imaginable visual concept-from abstractions such as dimension, format, and volume; to concrete objects such as form, size, color, and saturation; to activities such as repetition, mirroring, movement, and displacement; to relations such as symmetry, balance, diffusion, direction, and variation.
