This chapter addresses the roles, relationships and complementarity between text and image. It builds upon work done at the Research into Practice research group at the University of Hertfordshire (UK), which investigates issues of academic research in design-based disciplines. This text challenges the cliché that an image is worth more than a thousand words to argue that there are crucial complementary roles for text and image, in which text communicates aspects that image cannot and viceversa.
