A: The research group ‘visual rhetoric’.
– origins and aims of the research group.
– tangible results: readers, research, contacts
B: Research: describing graphic design practice
The research of the group tries to figure out how professional graphic design practice currently functions. It revealed a scala of different activities: every company has its own profile.
Furthermore, the research showed that it is possible to group the activities into three broad categories:
1: activities that deal with visual elements, such as text, illustrations and graphs.
2: activities that have to do with visual strategies: what are the visual aims of a project?
3: activities that relate designers with commissioners (co-operation) and actual beholders (interpretation).
C: This grouping of activities
can be applied to practice (it can be used to decide on a strategy for a company), education (it can be used for curriculum development) and research (the relations between visual logic, visual rhetoric and visual dialectics in the field of argumentation theory can be studied).
