The Politics of Design shows the importance of visual literacy when communicating across borders and cultures.
It explores the cultural meaning behind symbols, maps, photography, typography and colors. It is a practical guide for design and communication professionals and students to create more effective and responsible visual communication. Visual literacy is still a strong weapon nowadays, itÕs all about context.
This book will result in a stronger, fundamental response to the inevitability of being partial when dealing with images in the midst of globalization. Misinformation and the terrible consequences it may cause, may it be on purpose or not, is always a piece of vital information away.
This is the right book to fill that void, to build bridges between different perspectives on the meaning behind some characters, images and even the order and position they are presented in.
