…Visual Narrative and Peter Anderson
Last night I went with a good friend to the Design Museum Talks. Peter Anderson was talking about his 20 years experimenting with language and visuals.
It was such a deep and thoughtful talk in terms of designing visual language with a purpose rather than just to sell something.
I did not realise this was Peter Andersons work in Sherlock Holmes. Very Simple and adds to the story and the character of Sherlock Holmes.
I am already exploring this area of visual narrative in the other projects I am involved with. Time to prototype.
The areas Peter spoke about were:
– Is Language enough (why don’t we add words to pictures Flip our thinking)
– Experiment (Wordscapes and concrete poetry)
– Act as a Spark (Language as a mechanism)
– Fusing stuff (imagery with typography)
– Back to Basics
– Growing Information
– Language can start stories
– Living Language
– Thinking place
– Language vs Logo
– Animating Language
– Making knowledge accessible & information to progress knowledge
A lot of Peters work can be found on his website http://www.peterandersonstudio.co.uk/the_html/
