- Our topic for this week’s chat is on Visual Design in Learning Solutions.
- The visual design of any solution, be it an eLearning course, infographic or a performance support tool plays a large role in the effectiveness of that resource.
- In this week’s #GuildChat we explore the importance of visual design elements such as type, space, color, images, contrast. We will discuss the impact that this oft overlooked aspect of instructional design has on the ideas, concepts, and facts being taught and look to the community to share some of the best tips, techniques and resources you can leverage today to bring clarity to your content!

- — Bianca Woods (@eGeeking)Fri, Dec 01 2017 19:07:51A1 From my perspective they're mostly the same thing, (although admittedly saying "graphic design" usually means more to the average person than "visual design"). Graphic design is about visual communication. Visual design is perhaps a bit broader? #GuildChat

- — Laura Lowden (@lowden407)Fri, Dec 01 2017 19:09:44A1 I explain graphic design to be how we communicate the message through image while visual design is the way it feels. I think visual design to be more abstract. #guildchat
- — Bethany Bovard (@bethanybovard)Fri, Dec 01 2017 19:10:21A1 graphic designers utilize colors, typography, space to convey message; visual designers utilize graphic design skills & also UI, UX, and a dash of web design skills as well to support story ?? #guildchat
- — Bianca Woods (@eGeeking)Fri, Dec 01 2017 19:10:52A1 Maybe it's the end goal that's the differentiator? The goal of graphic design is communicate something specific. Visual design can be that, or it can just be any design choices with no singular end goal in mind. #GuildChat
