3 Part 1: Choose the ideas and the form of your visual text The text that I will base my visual text is…Brainstorm and select two or more ideas from your chosen text to present in your visual text.Text:
5 Visual technique: Bold lines Some features may need to be outlined in black to give them definition. Framing the image may help keep the viewer’s eye focused.Example:
6 Visual technique: Colour Designers need to carefully select which colours they use on a static image. Some colours are brighter and more eye-catching. The colours used should also be suitable for the image.You wouldn’t use pink to sell a heavy metal CD!
7 Visual technique: Lettering There are many options available with lettering: different fonts, sizes, upper or lower case, italic or bold. Font should be easy to read and, if it needs to be seen from a distance, it needs to have large lettering.Example:Easy to read? Easy to read? Easy to read?Easy to read? Easy to read? Easy to read?
8 Visual technique: Symbol A thing or drawing of a thing generally accepted as represented something or some quality.Example:Lion = courageCross = death, ChristianityTeardrop = sadness
9 Visual technique: Empty space There are times when empty space becomes an important technique. Empty space around the words and pictures helps to draw attention to them.

If you are using a computer and software like Publisher or Photoshop, think about how you can be original and how you can create a presentation that will command the attention of your audience.The finished visual text needs to be crafted and controlled, which means that it needs to look professional. Check through your text and look for any errors. Look for places where it can be improved. Are you pleased with the finished product or are there things which need amending or replacing?
