Visual communication design, is an exciting, evolving, diverse and growing area of practice which brings together information from various sources into a visually dominant form. Advances in communication technology, such as those provided by the web and mobile devices, are increasing the opportunities for designers in order to keep up with the ever-growing demand for visual stimuli.
