Through visual communication, any person at any level is capable of making a statement about himself and his environment in a contemporary form that could scarcely be forthcoming by other means of expression. Visual Communication Education in Nigeria is still in a rudimentary stage and needs to be clearly re-defined and restructured both in terms of the basic concept and the curriculum for instruction from primary to university levels. This book is in part, designed to reveal the new perspectives in the field of Visual Communication, which should be of interest to instructors and students in art colleges, polytechnics and universities; as well as researchers and media practitioners. The volume will also help create aesthetic interest in the casual reader and eventually increase the relevance of visual art in our environment. Chapter one introduces the conceptual framework for visual communication while chapter two analyses visual communication in the context of media as a whole. Chapter three provides the professional perspective into the current state of the art in the practice and application of visual communication as an important instrument for social and economic development. The author perceives this work as a fundamental approach toward the design and implementation of visual media for social and economic development in Nigeria. Through out this book, the concept of design and communication is viewed from a wholistic perspective to demonstrate its critical role in human development. The need to develop an international visual language and codes of communication as perceived by such pioneer artists and designers as Otto Neurath must be properly viewed as the precursor contemporary efforts to con tribute to the emerging theory of visual communication.

Kara gets curious as she reads the imprints. “Have you seen what’s written there?” She stares briefly but evasively. Dave doesn’t respond. “What’s wrong with you?” She bulges her eyes and raises her arms. “You’ve been acting weird all day. Is this about your gun license?” READ ON TO THIS CRAZY ACTION THRILLER!

Introduction Praise be to Allaah, we praise Him and seek His help and forgiveness. We seek refuge with Allaah from the evil of our own souls and from our evil deeds. Whomever Allaah guides, none can lead astray, and whomever Allaah leaves astray, none can guide. I bear witness that there is no god worthy of worship except Allaah alone, with no partner or associate, and I bear witness that Muhammad, sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam, is His slave and Messenger.

In the last edition of this discussion, I made mention that freedom is not free. Yes! Freedom is not free. You have to work hard for it. I remembered President Muhamadu Buhari being quoted to have called Nigerian Youth lazy, well while that is not good of a leader speaking of his followers and that I cannot vividly conclude on his context of saying that. I think he may be right when it comes to the youth asking for what belong to them. When it comes to the Nigeria youth asking for their right, we are so lazy.
