In psychology, parallel processing is the ability of the brain to simultaneously process incoming stimuli of differing quality.
Parallel processing is a part of the vision in that the brain divides what it sees into four components: color, motion, shape, and depth.
These are individually analyzed and then compared to stored memories, which helps the brain identify what you are viewing. The brain then combines all of these into the field of view that you see and comprehend.
“Graphic design is a visual language uniting harmony and balance, colour and light, scale and tension, form and content. But is also an idiomatic language, a language of cues and puns and symbols and illusions, of cultural references and perceptual inferences that challenge both the intellect and the eye.”
— Jessica Helfand
