"Chunking is a technique of combining many units of information into a limited number of units or chunks, so that the information is easier to process and remember." This is what visual hierarchy does for information delivery. Chunking is most visible on work that must be seen and processed for communication all at once. This can be an information graphic, a web home page, a printed poster, or similar item. An entire website or book can be broken apart to not be in such immediate need of chunking; however, all items should be aware of the visual hierarchy to deliver information well. Remember, if everything is "screaming", nothing will be "heard".
Below is a well-organized explanation of chunking, specifically for digital devices.
