By using visual storytelling as a tool, designers communicate events and opinions in a way that stands out from the continuous stream of images we encounter everyday. As there is always more than one side to a story, there are different perspectives from which the visual storyteller can work. By exploring various perspectives designers show the influence they have on a society dominated by images.

The projects in this book display how a socially relevant attitude combined with these various perspectives on storytelling extend the designers role to: Journalist – who creates compact and comprehensible reflections on the news. / Scientist – who dissects complex systems so as to find a transparent view. / Agitator – who questions and our personal opinions by provoking public debate. / Poet – who shares their personal reflections on reality to trigger the imagination.

Through exploring these various roles, designers prove how visual storytelling will raise an audiences visual literacy, it’s all about, Search, Find, Like, and Share.
