New visual means for communication are raising awareness for social stigmas
Visual language predates the written word and has trumped text communication since its inception. Thousands of years after engraving animal shapes on cave walls, we are returning to a time of image-based communications. Where cavemen had engravings and Egyptians hieroglyphics, the smartphone generation uses emojis, bitmojis and GIFs to successfully connect and communicate. One miniature, graphic image can represent a medley of situations, capturing an emotion, physical state or current location.
