    the use of a commer, hyphen or dots top separate words

    What is the appropiate way of writing the following message?
    NATIONAL VISION GLOBAL FOCUS
    Should there be a commer, hyphen or other etc. between VISION and GLOBAL?

    As this is not a complete sentence, the answer depends entirely on context.

    I'm not sure that punctuation is going to both separate the ideas, and still deliver the impact of the message:
    NATIONAL VISION - GLOBAL FOCUS
    NATIONAL VISION, GLOBAL FOCUS
    NATIONAL VISION. GLOBAL FOCUS

    Frankly, I'd go with

    NATIONAL VISION...
    ..GLOBAL FOCUS
