Text is Dead: Emerging Visual Languages Online

RIP text! In today’s world, GIFs, selfies, memes and emojis are mainstream and six-second Vine stars are the new celebrities.

But in a world where cursive handwriting is no longer taught in school and brands are issuing press releases entirely in emoji, are we moving forward or backward?

Join Vine star Nick Mastodon and branding expert Greg Swan for a conversation about the devolution of the written word, what’s next in the disruption of visual communication, and what skills individuals and brands need to be ready for 2016 trends in visual communication.
