Communication, Fine Arts, Marketing, Political Science, Visual Design, and Anthropology (among others) students interested in careful analysis of visual public messages will gain from learning concepts, terms, and examples in this book. Which visually-driven ad (of the thousands you encountered last week) caught and kept your attention? Why? Let’s learn together.
