Perception and Meaning
Following on from my previous musing on how we form a picture, I began thinking about how we create meaning from the things we see around us. Can we take what is there and distort or manipulate it to change its meaning? Is our perception of the things we see based just on what is in front of us…and how does what we already know affect our thought process? Just as situations can be misinterpreted or misread, people can view the same thing and see something totally different.
About MeI graduated in 2007 from the University of Central England with a first class degree in BA (Hons) Visual Communication. During my first two years at university I studied various aspects of Graphic Design from branding to editorial design. As a creative, yet logical thinker my final year was spent specialising in Information Design and Wayfinding. For the past 9 years I have been working as a Wayfinding Designer/Information Planner in London.
