- Identity design

Interesting quote from the course materials:

- Alternative messages
Another interesting excerpt from the course materials.
Visual communication isn’t just about promoting commercial interests or conveying governmental advice through mass media. Visual communication is equally used as a subcultural and grassroots tool for protest, creating identities or creating alternative ways of communicating.
