Developed by AIGA, this insightful e-book by Andrea Marks is designed
to help people who think in pictures—a segment of learners that by some
estimates includes almost 30 percent of the population—gain skills and
confidence in their writing abilities. It takes full advantage of its
rich media format with a wealth of images and links to articles, books,
websites, blogs, wikis, video and audio podcasts. Written with the
visual thinker in mind, Marks offers a feast for the eyes—from Leonardo
da Vinci’s sketchbooks to video of Jack Kerouac’s On the Road
scroll—adding depth and dimension to the written word and encouraging
readers to explore their thoughts and ideas in text.
Writing for Visual Thinkers approaches the craft
of writing from many directions, all with the ultimate goal of
unblocking the reader’s verbal potential. Both experimental and
pragmatic, Marks’s methods will result in stronger, more verbally
confident artists and designers.
