    color and ethnicity play a role in thecreative process of communications,design, visual arts; Color Blind isCulture Blind: The Art of VisualCommunications and Design is ademocratic process inclusive to allin the digital age, the computer anddigital media that has created adigital divide has also become agreat equalizer.We ubiquitously encounter visualimages on a daily basis, in our dailyroutines to work, out for a walk in the city, trip to the mall orsupermarket, as we unconsciouslygo about our lives. The fundamentalsof art, color, shape, form, contrast,line, texture, sound, smell, taste,movement, the seven senses; thefoundations of language, print media,illustration, drawing, painting, radio,television, music, web design, socialmedia, industrial design, fashiondesign, packaging, product pro-duction, and many other forms ofengineering and art that influencebrand identity, all are meaninglesswithout culture or informed byfunction. Linguistics is a visual formof complex ideas and culture fusedtogether that form a communicationsystem that is both expressed verbal-ly and visually; letters that createwords to form sentences that becometype, then copy to be used as visualelements in the form of typographyto aide in clarity of communicationwith visual elements such as photography, illustration, info-graphics to form Digital Media.When we connect to function andculture it establishes meaning andpurpose; good design is interested increating goods and services thatmake life better for all people, toelevate all humanity through clearcommunication and function.3.

    It is an asset for a VisualCommunicatorDesigner tounderstand the role of color andculture and how it communicatesthe brand story. The designers roleas cultural and visual anthropologist,the producer of symbols, language,cultural artifacts, and story tellerthat communicate to the masses andspecific groups, regardless of thedesigners background or audiences.Genetics is a scientific measurethat can place your origin to a landmass, tribe or group of people; butthere is no biological measure ofrace between different humanbeings, there is one race, the humanrace, we humans have a diverseethnic make up genetically andbelong to multiple cultural groups,even if we associate to one dominantgroup. We all have melamine in ourskin in various amounts, even withinthe same cultural or ethnic group,which leads to stratification in thehuman race and with-in a culturalgroup whether it is based on visualphenotypes and skin color or psychological preferences andsocial structure relating to cultureand class.

    Understanding how color and cul-ture work assist designers in theirwork; knowing when to use culturefor meaning or color as a visualelement, or linguistics as a vehiclefor information, is one of the pri-mary functions of a visual commu-nicator that requires professionaltraining. Training that providescommunicators with a workingknowledge of the complex dynam-ics of the artistic principals andphysics of color as well as a liberalartist education that includes histo-ry, social sciences that gives clarityto culture.5.Manipulation 6.
