About the Journal

Visible Language is the oldest peer-reviewed design journal. It advocates the teaching, research, and practice of visual communication design to enhance the human experience. Published by the Myron E. Ullman Jr. School of Design at the University of Cincinnati, Visible Language balances artfulness with science, innovation with respect for human patterns of use, evidence-based research with intuitive exploration, and technology with humanity.
