Hi, my name’s Alan and i’m studying a part-time MA in Graphic Design at the University of Hertfordshire. This blog has been set-up to act as a pin-board for my research journey.

My research is currently focused on the impact that Graphic Design can have on learning; the retention of data.  Can layout, colours and fonts, in addition to considered multimedia inclusion, assist with cognition and therefore better facilitate learning?

In the first instance I was focusing on e-textbooks, but I am currently looking to broaden my research horizons to include eLearning programs.

I will be considering different age groups for my audience as well as reflecting on the idiosyncrasies of audiences from various geographical regions and social backgrounds to further inform my work.
