Visual Minute Week 3: Dennis Keeley

By April 19, 2016 December 17th, 2019 The Visual Minute, Visual Communication

While attending SXSW this year, my Creative Director and I attended a session entitled “The Rise of the Visual Strategist.” Led by Dennis Keeley and Peter Krogh, this was by far one of the most interesting sessions on the Interactive track. Both Keeley and Krogh are experts in the world of visual content and discussed how visual language has become the expected mode of communication among younger generations. Given their experience, I met up with them after the session and asked if they would be willing to be a part of our Visual Minute campaign. The next day I had the privilege of interviewing Dennis Keeley, Chair of the Photography and Imaging Department of the Art Center College of Design. Checkout his answer to our question “What makes visual content worth paying attention to” in this week’s Visual Minute and watch for Peter’s response in a few weeks.
