What does visual communication mean

visual communication

Visual communication - Visual communication takes the form of images. In right-handed people, images address the right half of the brain, while words predominantly address the left half of the brain. Visual communication is more effective than verbal communication: "Talking is silver, showing is gold". The superiority of images is based on seven effects:

Sequence effect
Images are perceived earlier than words: "The first impression is decisive."

Speed ​​effect
Images are perceived faster than words. Visual information is a snap shot into the brain that, unlike verbal information, a human being cannot reject. This is a great advantage given the information overload.

Attention effect
Images attract more attention than words. The attention of the courted person or target group is the basic requirement for influencing purchasing behavior (AIDA formula).

Activation effect
Images activate (excite) more than words. Information that activates more strongly is absorbed and processed better (activation).

Intelligibility effect
Pictures are easier to understand than words: "A picture is worth a thousand words."

Credibility effect
Pictures are more believable than words: "You believe more than two ears in one eye."

Memory effect
Pictures are better remembered than words. Visual information is stored twice in the brain, i.e. in image form on the right and in word form on the left.
