“The visuals distinguish culture from the cultures.”
Albert Young Choi, C 2009

We are connected as human beings in many different ways, but the essential connection among people is communication-based visuals. Over our human history, we have created visuals to share similarities and to differentiate the dissimilarity. Those historical artifacts become cultural icons for a particular culture, nation, and race. We as humans have created visuals to decorate these artifacts; the artifacts are the visuals. Even in today’s complicated network of people, fundamental communication never will change the visuals we understand. The Global Visual Culture Symposium (GVC Symposium) gathers educators, practitioners, researchers, thinkers, and students in the visual communication design disciplines. We share our thoughts and find our communication for our generation and beyond.
