This reading was interesting to me because I read it from a strategic communication major’s point of view with the added perspective of a design minor. The concepts of design, art, typography, and layout are all relevant to me.
Tie as interesting to see how Tufte presented the subconscious implications of charts or other media. The colors, lines, and spacing (location) of adverts or other media are all strategically placed. The human eye and mind have been conditioned to understand the implicit placement, and the relationship between the natural interaction and the placement is direct.
Leading Lines are also large parts of other media.
Photography would be an example of that. Although I understand that it is not a direct line, the lines in the image above still guide the eye through the image, much like Tufte’s arrows.
