Visually Interesting focuses on the Art of Visual Communication & Design. This primarily includes Graphic Design and Photography. I endeavour to present useful and interesting information in a clean, professional manner through the use of photography, written word, video and animation.

Visually Interesting is run by Tom Barden. Tom graduated receiving a 2:1 in graphic design in 2011. His final major project was to explore the possibilities of developing a new wayfinding system for Heathrow airport with the intention of creating an internationally recognised standard. Since then, he has started his own graphic design & signage company and worked in the Further Education sector as a graphic designer and marketer.

Tom is a keen amateur photographer many examples of his work can be viewed on this site.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you find the work on this blog both interesting and inspirational!

  1. Tom,

    Very interesting reading your blog.

    I am interested in your theory on pictograms and your re-design for BAA signs at Heathrow.

    Perhaps you would like to contact me to discuss your project / look at your work so far…

    It is pretty rare that students embark on this type of project.

    with thanks

    • Thanks very much! I’m looking forward to seeing some more minimal photography coming from your blog!


  2. I love your blog. Your pictures are absolutely stunning! I am just a beginner photographer and I hope I can develop and shoot images like yours! πŸ™‚


    • Thanks for the compliment! It’s nice when someone appreciates the work that’s being done πŸ™‚ I’m on a desperate struggle/crusade to try and dramatically improve the photography I’m producing at the moment, so be sure to see some more photos soon! πŸ˜€
