About this product
- DescriptionWords and images can harmonize to clarify meaning in a variety of texts. This interdisciplinary work presents practitioners, researchers, creative artists, and teachers discussing how we process and develop meaning from words and images. This study is especially important for writers and designers working in electronic communication environments, where the marriage of words and images challenges traditional training. Ranging from theory to practice, chapters examine both cognitive issues and aesthetic concerns. This book explores topics such as:^L^DBLHuman processing of images and text^DBLThe roles of written language in project development in the arts^DBLUses of images and visual thinking by writers^DBLHow the ways in which words and images convey meaning can be both different and complementary^LProfessionals, teachers, and students will be understand more effective uses of text and visual displays, and today's writer or designer will learn to clarify complex ideas by controlling the intersections of words and images.
