Bilingualism in Visual Communication
Book Launch at Amman Design Week 2017
The value of bilingual typography and its implications are at the core interests of prominent and emerging designers in the region. Bilingualism in visual communication is becoming an imperative approach in design praxis. Diane Mikhael introduces the new publication, ‘Bilingualism in Visual Communication’, which showcases an amalgam of historical accounts, concepts and design practices in pairing the Arabic and Latin scripts. It portrays the reality of the bilingual terrain in the MENA region, the emergent bilingual audience, the approach of bilingualism in the context of visible language, and the juxtaposition of two visual systems, which are manifested through design codes to form effective communication.
