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.
