Title:
Sticky Graphics: Creating Memorable Graphic Design using Mnemonics and Visual Hooks
Authors:
Glaser, Jessica; Knight, Carolyn
Abstract:
The researchers question the ways in which visual factors play a vital role in affecting memory, specifically examining the ways in which the visual language of graphic design plays a vital role in modifying memory. Glaser and Knight discusses what personal influences and world issues influence memory (for example family and individual preference). This research emerges from their interest in mnemonics and the fact that there was a lack of research specifically relating to visual mnemonics within graphic design. The strategies involve interdisciplinary text based research and original research with professionals leading to analysis and synthesis. The book is organized in terms of visual content and its spatial context, the pursuit of emotional response, tactile response and closes with a chapter on metaphor, metonomy and simile. The work is referenced to experienced, professional graphic designers, with examples of visual communication from around the world. The authors collate archive, analyze and present visual examples that demonstrate how visual language can aid memory. Glaser’s primary focus is on the visual aspects, while Knight’s is upon linguistic content.
