session 2 reflection

In session two, the five visual displays of giant squid let me know what make a visual display effective. The use of visual display is to convey data, information, as well as knowledge. Thus we can evaluate the effectiveness of visual display by asking questions about who are the audiences, the relevance of the information, the way the information is presented, and the organization of the visuals and text.

Creativity is very important to visual design. The purpose of visual display is to enable visual thinking by conceptualizing our experiences as structures in motions. Images have a unique power to express multiple meanings at the same time.
