From the 40,000 year old cave and rock paintings of Lascaux, France, to the emerging design genre of desktop wallpapers, if you're at all curious about how we got from there to here, you'll enjoy this comprehensive yet brief springboard to understanding The History Of Visual Communication.
Courtesy of Alpha Auer, this is a great read for the serious aspiring visual communicator and/or designer. The site walks you through the long and diverse history of a particular aspect of human endeavour: The translation of ideas, stories and concepts that are largely textual and/or word based into a visual format, i.e. visual communication.
Bookmark this one y'all, it's a great reference site: The History Of Visual Communication.
Have a great week.
Thanks to The Design Observer.
