How it works…


Visual Rhetoric runs annually with a cycle that offers three opportunities to get involved.

  • In February – March LSE researchers pitch their projects to LCC design students. Designers then choose an LSE project to visualise as part of their workshop option on Information Design.
  • In March – April LCC design students have the chance to select LSE research for their end of year project.
  • In December, after LCC designers finish their MA there is an opportunity of an internship at LSE to either deepen the work started during the year or take on new projects.

Each annual cycle is supported by preparatory workshops for designers and researchers to launch the collaboration, individual meetings between the pairs, feedback sessions, seminars, public exhibitions, an annual public lecture, and prizes for the best Visual Rhetoric design. Additional workshops are open to all researchers, who would like to explore design principles in visualisation and research.
