Visual Communication and Interaction

When considering visual communication, think about how are we meant to interact with it. Context helps us design more effective messages.

Context of Location

In what context would you see this? Would it only be effective in this context?

Context of Content

What design principles are used in this poster? How do they help clarify the message?

Context of Time

Why might it be relevant that this was released in January? How might it be targetting readers?
