verbicovisual explorations was my response to the International Society of Typographic Designer’s annual student assessment, which invited designers to typographically explore recordings of rural accents. Many of the words and phrases spoken in these clips, and especially their dialectal delivery, would rarely be seen in print; rather they would only ever exist in an oral context. While researching this peculiarity, a typographic goldmine revealed itself—an artistic innovation called concrete poetry. Concrete poems communicate verbicovisually, in that they rely on their typographic arrangement to visually express some of the meaning usually acquired in speech. Check out the case study here.
