Design for Visual Communication: Challenges and Priorities

Klimis Mastoridis (Editor), Niki Sioki (Editor), Mary Dyson (Editor)

Research output: Book/ReportBookpeer-review


The contents of this book are mainly based on ideas discussed within the framework of the 2016 International Conference on Typography and Visual Communication (ICTVC). This event was initiated at the beginning of the new millennium and has since developed into an internationally respected event.
The chapters included in this volume provide evidence of visual communication as an established discipline where critical research informs design practice, printing history lays the foundations for future projects, and professional practice benefits from cross-disciplinary collaborations.
The anthology investigates both current and future challenges and priorities in the field of design for visual communication, and will serve to provide a vivid spark to start a discourse in this regard. It will become a working tool and reference point for people interested in studying and researching typography and visual communication.
