This type of appreciation is what fundamentally shapes the best practices in visualization design: considering and respecting the needs of the reader. The important point is this: to ensure that our message is conveyed in the most effective and efficient form, one that will serve the requirements of the receiver, we need to make sure we design (or "encode") our message in a way that actively exploits how the receiver will most effectively interpret (or "decode") the message through their visual perception capabilities.

As suggested previously, instinct and taste have got us so far but to move on to a whole new level of effectiveness, we need to understand the key design concepts and learn about the creative process.
