Visual rhetoric in London

The London College of Communication and the London School of Economics run a Visual Rhetoric project which brings together social science researchers with graphic designers who 'visualise' their work.

An associated Visual Rhetoric Seminar Series was launched on 20.03.13 with a whirlwind presentation by social activist-graphic designer Tony Credland. Examples given of the innovative use of graphic design to aid and abet social activism included: the Cactus Project, designed to foster east-west collaboration between artists in Europe; UK tax reform campaigners UK Uncut and French anti-capitalist campaigners Ne Pas Plier.
