Visual design for software and web is comparable in quality to that of music and art: most of it is mediocre or even terrible. In this presentation, I will present examples of the best visual design from around the world and across a broad range of products by many designers to see what they have in common. You will learn to decode the language of visual narrative and brand, typography, composition, color and metaphor so that you can insure that you and the visual designers you work with arrive at the best possible outcomes.
