Short decription: 

Visible Language has been published continuously since 1967. It began as The Journal of Typographic Research and was published under this title for the first 4 years. The founder and first editor, Dr. Merald Wrolstad, understood that research and scholarly information was essential to the development of communication design and in particular to the development of typography in its support of reading and writing. Understanding the broader implications, he changed the title to Visible Language. In 1987, the journal passed to its second editor Sharon Poggenpohl, who has sought to strengthen the investigation of design research, interdisciplinary thinking and the evolution of digital communication along with its cultural impact.

Over its lifetime, the journal has published nearly 900 articles. Starting with a narrow focus on typography, the journal has continued to evolve in response to the changing landscape of communication design.
