BCGD Honours Topic: "Is non-textual narrative illustration an effective way for communication?"
Narrative illustration is a general term describes a certain story or event with combined image and words, while non-textual narrative
illustration, as a style with fewer readerships completely abandon words and dialogues. Unfortunately, pure-visual communication
became a neglected area of modern illustration. Therefore, my study direction aims on the relationship between visual and textual language, which involves research of the semiology, color phycology and visual semiotics. I will produce reasonable amount of textual and non-textual illustrations to survey random selected audiences, as well as
experiment with various media convention. The final report analyzes the interpretation of narrative illustration in the absence of textual
dialogue and how both particular genres create different patterns toward understanding the content.
