Visual perception is defined as the ability to interpret the surrounding environment by processing information that is contained in visible light. Consider all the graphic design one student encounters in a day. He gets on the yellow school bus, sees and ignores safety signs, sits next to a student with a concert t-shirt, looks down social media posts on his phone. He arrives at school, sees his school name on the outside brick wall, sees a banner overhead, graduation signs, posters in the hallways. He is now in class and sees many things at once including a pile of book covers, motivational posters, objectives for the day on the board, he opens his laptop and opens to his teachers website, then goes to a quiz.
