Abstract

Since the digital revolution, there has been a significant impact on how we live, work and play. For designers, it has transformed design practices and created new opportunities. However, this can bring about new problems and challenges. How can we communicate effectively in the digital age with different media and technologies advancing so rapidly? With the overload of information from tablets, smartphones, computers and television, we often start to overlook information. From research I will argue techniques that can help with us understand information in the digital realm and prove the importance of expression within visual communication.
