Visual Rhetoric

Visual Rhetoric is a collaborative project that brings together designers with social scientists to effect change.

This research project started life as as experimental encounter that emerged from conversations between Penny Hilton at the London College of communication and Martin Bauer from the London School of Economics. The idea was for design students to gain easy access to real research data for their projects and for LSE students to gain awareness of visual rhetoric ie the concepts and techniques of information design. 

Below is the recruitment film to call for student participants and gives an outline of the projects’ intention.
