PUBLIC PLACES THAT COULD SHOW TYPES OF VISUAL COMMUNICATION:
BUS STOP- SHOPS- CITY CENTRE- BILLBOARDS - NEWSPAPERS- THE UNDERGROUND ETC.
This is an advertisement for the National Portrait Gallery, on the side of a bus stop, accessible for the all the public to see. Its quite a basic design, however, the colours stand out and its simple with interesting and limited type, this would definitely enhance the readers interest, as its quick and easy to be attracted to it. The poster asks the reader questions such as 'What drives me?' which has got to get a reaction and engage the reader in some way, even if it is only until the bus comes.
This is an art campaign made by a group of graphic designers for artwork of the London underground. They have chosen famous historical and political icons and made a poster with a famous quote from that person. I definitely think its eye catching due to the bold colours and the faces our instantly recognisable anyway. It makes waiting for the train more interesting, which was the point, I think its worked successfully.
I think this is quite clever, even though the actual design of the advertisement itself obviously hasn't had too much thought visually, but I think its clever where its been placed. Thousands of people will get on that tube carriage everyday and your constantly looking up at the map and the advertisements around, this would definitely be unavoidable to read, which is all its actually saying so I think its effective, not sure what its actually advertising though.
This is an eye catching billboard, the fact that its 3D catches peoples eye, and the brand, Apple, is so well known that its instantly interesting because pretty much everyone wants to own an Apple product. Theres also recognisable album covers on the billboard which people will connect with.
This is probably one of the biggest forms of visual communication, newspapers are everywhere and theres so many different ones, you can't help but read the headlines as you walk by a news agents or flick through one thats been left on the tube/bus.
