Some resources that will help you learn to assess visuals for their ability to communicate and their suitability to the medium.

Get a printable, multi-stage checklist for editing visuals and even more resources to help you learn to assess visuals.


Thanks to ECE3 contributors Yvonne Van Ruskenveld and Ashley Rayner for speaking to me about their area of expertise, and to their wrangler, visuals specialist Mary Rose MacLachlan.
