Writing and Design: A diagram

If we were to make a Venn diagram of writing vs. design, we would see that the circle for writing falls entirely inside the circle for design, but does not fully encapsulate design. By this I mean all writing must have an element of design, but not all that has design is written. Music has design, art has design, even nature has design. To effectively communicate we must utilize all of the elements encapsulated by the design circle, written and otherwise. With the technology we have at hand it would be foolish to simply do the age old, black and white design of writing past. We see that our world has provided us with a means of communicating through color, FONT and size. Even links, pictures and music.

When we realize we have these tools for written communication, we realize we have a whole new design element to work with, and to be a part of our own time we must use it.
