The power of visual communication
- Without imagery, bathrooms, street signs and public transport would be plastered with words; instructions overwhelming a message so simply delivered with a stick figure or arrow.
- We are far better at learning and remembering content we’ve seen in pictures than words. Imagery overcomes language or socio-economic barriers.
- Visual communications should be creative, striking, engaging and memorable.
- Keep the design simple and timely. Visual content is 40 times more likely to get shared, and articles that feature an image every 75-100 words receive double the social media shares than those with text alone.
- Add movement to your content to controlled timing of information. Our brains actively predict what inputs are ahead, rather than passively processing information as it arrives. Controlling the sequence and tempo of visual information therefore heightens curiosity and engagement.
