Understanding Visual Communication

06.05.2024 - 07.05.2024

The aim of the workshop is to learn the language of the Visual. Based on the workshop leader’s twelve years’ experience as a graphic designer and his subsequent experience in training small printing companies to transform themselves into design consultancies, this workshop examines the principles of visual communication that will enable primarily verbal communicators to become more effective at expressing their ideas in a compelling visual format.
