What was the most disturbing thing about the textbooks when we grew up?
No illustrations. Didn’t an idea of a textbook without any pictures just bore us?
Weren’t the stories in a picture book seemed more intriguing?
Isn’t a concept more digestible when taught to us through videos?
Graphics communicates, in its own mystical ways, better to a human mind than words.
Remember, Ishan from Taare Zameen Par, was able to learn when taught through creative methods. We remember those stories we read in our childhood because the pictures and sloppy handwriting talked more to us than the printed words. A paper with bright colours grabs our attention faster than a white paper. Even a passionate reader will prefer a novel with illustrations in it, if he/she could find such. Human mind always craves for something new, and graphics provide that ‘something new’ to our eyes.
When beautiful colour, a stylish handwriting, an absorbing background and interesting shapes combine together in a box, a masterpiece takes birth. And that masterpiece converse with the world so perfectly, giving away all its meaning to its audience.
