The Art of Conversation
Level 3 Graphic Communication Diploma Colchester School Of Art
The Art of Conversation As part of their final major projects, students of the Colchester School of Art, were asked to develop a concept that visually represented the idea and motivation behind conversations; both socially and culturally. The â€˜Art of Conversationâ€™ explores the visual relationship between varying modes of communication and what the process of this means to a graphic designer. Students needed to develop these ideas using a preferred specialist approach in a unique and engaging fashion, drawing on the skills they had experienced in their first year of study.
