What is Visual Design?

Visual designing is communication via a visual aid. It can be expressed as the transfer of information and ideas in forms that can be read or seen. It comprises various elements that combine to form a visual piece suitable for advertising through print or digital media.

These elements include signs, drawing, graphic design, typography, illustrations, color patterns, etc. Visual designing operates in the belief that a visual message accompanying a text has a very high potential to educate, inform, or persuade the audience.

Visual communication in part or whole depends on vision. It focuses on the aesthetic value of a website. Hence, it strategically plays with the looks via the help of fonts, colors, images, etc. Visual designing is basically used to enhance the website’s interface and a user’s overall experience.
