Advertisements have become a huge part of society in the modernized world of today. Around the world, many people can see all of the various advertisements not only on TVs and newspapers but also on billboards, buses, and walls of buildings. Advertising is an influential part of life and we can easily realize that it has useful purposes for public and private manufacturers and companies throughout the world. Advertisements can either give consumers a great amount of knowledge about the products or just convince them to buy and want the products. Advertisements also help sell the products which keep the economy growing, but people should also be aware of how much they spend because they may not actually need every product that they see that they want to purchase.

Advertisements are by nature build upon the three persuasive principles of Aristotle’s tradition: ethos, logos and pathos. The way these powerful tools are used is not always ethical, in the sense that, too often, they are used, maybe also unintentionally but still, to convey the wrong messages. This is the case of the advertisement made by Gap U.K., the famous American clothes shop, now popular all over the world. In this essay I am going to deeply analyze the advert using the techniques of the Visual Analysis. I will start with Panofsky’s Iconology, which consists in describing a picture according to three level of analysis (Primary, Secondary and Tertiary).
Everyday, human activities involve the use of different media of communication, including images. People come across different images on a daily basis but rarely take the time to reflect on their real meanings. Advertisements are among the most common types of images that we come across quite often. Solomon described advertisements to be a way of communicating the various issues affecting the society (60). Although the main aim of advertisements is to market certain products or services, all advertisements explain a specific issue affecting the society. This paper involves a visual rhetoric of two images that communicate issues of diversity in the workplace, which involves an analysis of the target audience, purpose, and typography of the image.
Through this, Trump is seeking to persuade his audience, United States Voters, to vote for him rather than Clinton. Throughout the entire commercial, Clinton is portrayed in a very negative light based on the things being said and the undesirable images of her. There are bolded facts shown across the screen that are not portraying Clinton in a positive perspective to show that she is corrupt. The Clinton Foundation, which she helped start and continues to run, is “the most corrupt enterprise in political history” (Trump 1). In this commercial, the rhetorical strategies pathos and logos are used. Pathos is used in the sense that the commercial appeals to the emotions of the viewer. Statements such as “sold out American workers,” “exploited Haitians in need,” and “Hillary Clinton only cares about money, power, and herself” (Trump Campaign) are intended to anger viewers and caused you to feel bad for American workers and Haitians, in turn causing an emotional response to the facts. This emotional response will begin to give people a negate opinion of Clinton. Logos is is used in the sense that everything being said throughout the entire commercial is pure facts. Every single explanation for how the Clintons became filthy rich is completely true, every single American worker and Haitian in need affected by Clinton have a story

David Carson had such an impact on the graphic design scene throughout the 90’s that he was nicknamed “The Godfather of Grunge.” Having a highly specialized style of contemporary work he is considered to be one of the greats of this field.

Respect and reverence is seen once again in the advertisement with the use of the patriotic red, white, and blue coloring scheme. Even the mans blue outfit has stripes on it to complete the whole U.S.A. loyalty theme.

David Ogilvy testifies that, regarding advertising a product, “the headlines which work best are those which promise the reader a benefit.” Those benefits do not have to be directly related to the product; instead, they can be related to the consumer’s subconscious needs, such as wealth, relationships, and sex. Subliminal messaging is one of the most popular advertising techniques. With that, nevertheless, comes a lot of criticism and ridicule. In every scholarly article regarding the subject, subliminal messages are unjustifiably condemned of being disturbing, suggestive references found in advertising as a mere way of cheating consumers to buy products; however, putting subliminal messages in their historical context, proves them less guilty, and more reflective of the society they appeal to. Barbasol is an American shaving cream company, which was founded back in 1919, and has very recently regained its reign in the American marketplace. Aside from the company’s exemplary business strategies, its advertising has always included heavy doses of subliminal messages, especially after World War II. Barbasol’s advertising can reveal some crucial information on the topic, and add a full plate or more to the table. Barbasol used socially-relevant subliminal messages to promote their androcentric product, which in turn recounts the discrete placement of males and females in American society at their publication dates.
