The Evolution of Media 
Over the past several decades, communication media have evolved significantly. In addition to communicating messages through books, newspapers, and magazines, we now have the ability to communicate through blogs, websites, and social media like Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube. Now, more than ever, the average person is capable of creating and distributing professional-looking visual communication. This supports what your textbook identifies as perhaps the most significant change; these “new technologies are forcing journalists, advertisers, PR professionals, and entertainment executives to relinquish their role as ‘gatekeepers’ of information." 
Taking a look at one of the professions listed in this quote, or even your own profession, reflect on how the role of “gatekeeper” is being redefined, given these new technologies. What are the benefits and challenges associated with this change, both from a business perspective and a social perspective? Are there any ethical concerns associated with this shift? 
This journal entry should allow you to thoroughly reflect upon what you have learned thus far in class, and provides you an opportunity to relate this learning to your professional and/or personal experiences. Your journal entry may be written in a more informal style, with a focus on clearly conveying your ideas. APA formatting elements are not required for your journal entry, but you are expected to adhere to conventional rules of grammar, sentence structure, spelling, and punctuation.

  1. Compare and contrast Kennedy’s definition of visual literacy with the textbook’s definition.
  2. Which of the two definitions do you believe is more accurate in today’s world? Discuss and support your position.
  3. Explain how visual literacy can be considered a universal language.
  4. Discuss how visual literacy can impact communication and global understanding..

Submit to your instructor your two- to three-page paper (not including the title and reference pages). Your paper must be formatted according to APA style as outline in the approved APA style guide, and must cite at least two scholarly sources in addition to the textbook.

Typography in Business

Oftentimes, we can’t avoid using words to communicate messages. And sometimes, we’re even limited with the visuals we can include. So, how can we make our messages as clear and aesthetically pleasing as possible? Incorporating typography can assist us in this… especially in the business setting. Take a look at the following documents and examine how strategic use of typography and white space has affected the second document. 
Example:

 Now, select one of the documents below, and utilize typography and the information in the Practical Typography Tutorials (http://desktoppub.about.com/od/typetutorials/Practical_Typography_Tutorials.htm) website to improve the way it communicates its message. 

 Keep in mind the differences between display type and text type, and be sure to consider the two elements of readability and legibility and as you complete this activity. Then, post your revision to the discussion forum as an attachment for your classmates to see. Describe at least one editing choice you made, and explain why you made it. 

Bauhaus Manifesto

Your textbook describes design in light of the Bauhaus manifesto.

According to the Bauhaus Design History  (http://designhistory.org/Bauhaus_pages/BauhausOrigins.html), what was so new about the Bauhaus modern art school “was its attempt to integrate the artist and the craftsman, to bridge the gap between art and industry.” It goes on to explain that “mass production was the god, and the machine aesthetic demanded reduction to essentials, an excision of the sentimental choices and visual distractions that cluttered human lives.” 

Keeping this in mind, explain the concept of design in your own words. Compare and contrast it with art, and explain how “cluttering” a design with unnecessary elements can have a potentially negative impact on the message it bears. Finally, depending on the first letter of your last name, use the Web to find at least one visual communication piece (e.g., a website, an advertisement, a logo, etc.) that either exemplifies Bauhaus’ concept of design or does not. Then, describe why. 

Last Name: 

A-L: Find a visual communication piece that exemplifies Bauhaus’ concept of design 

M-Z: Find a visual communication piece that does not exemplify Bauhaus’ concept of design

When considering magazines like National Geographic, or social media like Pinterest, it becomes evident that photography plays an instrumental role in visual communication. However, creating an impactful photograph is not always easy.

Your textbook explains the importance of design and composition in successful photography. For this discussion, locate a photograph (either on the Web or in print) that strategically uses at least three elements of design (e.g., balance, color, asymmetry, etc.). Then, paste a link to the photograph (or, if it is in print, upload a scanned copy to the discussion forum or the web), and explain which elements are utilized, and how they affect the overall impact and message of the photograph.

Possible Resources

Example: 

Link to Photo: http://photography.nationalgeographic.com/photography/photo-of-the-day/svartifoss-waterfall-iceland/

I chose photograph of Svartifoss, Iceland, taken by Giacomo Ciangottini, and displayed on the Photo of the Day section of the National Geographic website.

This photograph utilizes asymmetry (particularly, the rule of thirds) with the waterfall on the left. This asymmetry is balanced by the dark section of rock in the upper right corner of the image. The photograph also utilizes line, in that the waterfall, the lines in the cliff, and the slope of the area around the lake all work together to guide the eye from the upper left, directly down the photograph, and toward the bottom right. Finally, its use of color conveys an overall impression of a natural, albeit, majestic scene.

Guided Response: Respond to at least two of your peers with feedback on their analysis of the photograph they selected. Do you see the same design elements they did? Do you agree with their interpretation of how these elements impact the overall photograph? Can you find any additional design elements they did not address in their post?
 

Like photographs, motion pictures are a significant medium for visual communication.

Watch at least three documentary trailers. (Recommended: iTunes Movie Trailers: Documentary(http://trailers.apple.com/trailers/genres/documentary/)
Based on one of the trailers, what do you think is the intended message of the documentary? What are motion pictures able to do that photos and still images cannot, and how does that impact the message being communicated? Can you think of any ethical concerns or controversial issues related to the use of motion pictures as a communication medium? Explain.

Today more than ever, photographs and other visual media are at our fingertips. Whether it’s through Google Images or Flickr, we have endless visual media available for us to use. Or, do we? 

Watch the video Copyright Basics  (http://www.copyright.com/content/cc3/en/toolbar/education/resources/copyright_basics1.html). 

Submit a two- to three-page paper (not including the title and reference pages) describing the benefits and challenges associated with having so many visuals available to us today. Describe the ethical and legal implications of using photos and other visual media and describe how these issues can be avoided. 

Your paper must be formatted according to APA style as outlined in the approved APA style guide, and you must cite at least two scholarly sources, in addition to the textbook.

Visual communication is just about everywhere we look. Reflect on the visuals you’ve seen in your daily life over the past couple weeks, and the messages they’ve communicated (e.g., TV commercials, billboards, magazine ads, web ads, websites, product packaging, photographs, etc.). Do any stand out in your mind? If so, why do you think they were so effective in getting your attention? Are there any trends you are noticing specifically in today’s media? 

This journal entry should allow you to thoroughly reflect upon what you have learned thus far in class, and provides you an opportunity to relate this learning to your professional and/or personal experiences. Your journal entry may be written in a more informal style, with a focus on clearly conveying your ideas. APA formatting elements are not required for your journal entry, but you are expected to adhere to conventional rules of grammar, sentence structure, spelling, and punctuation.

You should now have a strong outline for the message you plan to communicate in your Final Project as well as a good idea of how you want to incorporate visuals. This week, you are required to locate or create at least five possible visuals that you might utilize for your Final Project (e.g., photographs, drawings, video clips, screenshots) and add them to your existing project draft. Be sure to reference any visuals that you did not create in proper APA format. 

In a one- to two-page paper (not including the title and reference pages), explain the following:

  • Why you selected the visuals.
  • How they support your intended message.
  • What reaction or results you hope to gain from the use of these visuals.

As part of your explanation, be sure to include examples to support each required point. Your paper must be formatted according to APA style as outlined in the approved APA style guide.

Review the concepts we’ve covered in the past few weeks of this course, and list five take-away’s. Explain why the five take-away’s are relevant to you. Then, describe at least one concept that is either still unclear to you, or one you’d like to explore further.  
Guided Response: Respond to at least two of your peers. How are their take-away’s different from yours? With regards to the one concept they identified as unclear or would like to explore further, can you offer any additional insight, resources, and/or clarification? 
 
Social Media 
 
Social media can have a significant impact on a company’s success (both positive and negative). What are the pros of social media, and how do you think they can be harnessed to promote effective communication? What are the cons, and how do you think they can be avoided, to prevent a communication disaster? Identify one example that illustrates effective use of social media, and one example that illustrates ineffective use of social media.
 
Guided Response: Respond to at least two of your peers. How does their analysis compare to yours? Do you agree that the examples they identified appropriate represent the effective and ineffective uses of social media? Explain.

Final Project: Using Visuals to Communicate a Message

Visual media can have a significant impact on how effectively a message is communicated. Appropriate and strategic visuals can inspire the audience, lend clarity to a message, and, in general, say things that words alone cannot. 

Throughout this course, you decided on a message to communicate, determined the most effective platform or medium for that message, and selected the most appropriate visuals to support the message. For the Final Project, you will use a minimum of three different types of appropriate media to deliver your intended message. Note that if you did not create the visual, you must include a reference for the visual(s) contained in the project. 

For this project, use the concepts you’ve learned in this course to effectively apply visuals to a business-related message. Below, you will find just a few examples of how visuals can be utilized to communicate a message in the business setting. Feel free to use any of the examples listed below, or if you choose to select examples not included on the list, be sure to request instructor approval prior to completing the Final Project.
