Visual Literacy, Beyond Linguistic Communication: a Collaborative Research Project
Trudy Cole, Department of Graphic Design at JMU in collaboration with James Smith, Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at UVA
The mission of this grant is to study non-linguistic communication, namely visual communication. The study will be tested and ultimately materialize in the form of label instructions and an information pamphlet for the PureMadi¿s point-of-use water purification system. The knowledge gained, project documentations and PowerPoint presentation of the process will be used as a case study for a unit plan and project on visual communication in JMU¿s GRPH 208 Design Methodology course. The PowerPoint presentation will also be used for education and presentational purposes.
