It is often said that a picture is worth a thousand words. The converse, therefore, is that words are valuable to pictures. Combine the two, and the potential impact of a message is exponential. In “Thoughts on Design,” Paul Rand wrote the following:
“Visual communications of any kind, whether persuasive or informative, from billboards to birth announcements, should be seen as the embodiment of form and function: the integration of the beautiful and the useful.”
In communication, images and words merge form with function. They work collectively to enhance audience understanding, without which the message is meaningless.
I began my career as a graphic designer, communicating visually. My longtime appreciation for language led me to pursue a Master of Science in Public Communication. Together, these two sides of the same coin make me a stronger overall communicator.
