    This paper is an account of a study conducted to collect experiential responses from the design field to develop a transparent definition of the role of intuition and it’s place in decision making for designers. The objective is to communicate the type of techniques that have collectively formed a method for coping with and communicating multi-sensory information, delineating the subtle differences in employment of visual thinking and the visual language. Findings present challenges for developing new forms of analysis using visual thinking with
    an intention to re-connect them through rhetorical reasoning with more diverse literature and existing knowledge.
