Design is the key to success in Visual Communication – continuity, composition, clarity, typographic design, color and the ability to develop ideas and concepts that communicate a solution that is comprehensive
in the visualization process. The ability to communicate your ideas verbally requires practice in using a design vocabulary. The first 10 words out of your mouth may determine whether an employer will hire you, thinking. Can this person help me in my company with their ideas,  concepts and design knowledge?
