Design posters and other forms of advertisement are meant to express a certain view that the particular artist or company has on certain issues. Cigarette Advertisements are the most popular examples of the previous statement because the ads are trying to convince and deceive mainstream society to think that their product is appropriate and “made” for them. In order to effectively persuade the viewers to believe that a specific design depicts an actual word or phase, the artist or designer must create and arrange the objects on a grid in such a way that will allow the viewer’s mind to imagine the word or phrase being visualized in the art piece. In most cigarette ads, the designer incorporates images of “happy people” or “attractive people” as a method of persuasion. Other designs can be triggered by pivotal moments and events in history. The “Atomic Bombs”, “Mushroom Clouds”, “Black Power” and “White Power” designs that were created in the 1960’s are examples that interested me in terms of social context designs. Each of the artist/designers posters were very “eye-catching” and “controversial” just like the events in history that they attempted to express, such as the Cold War and the Black and White Power movements. In my opinion, it is the designers’ job to visually create ways to convince the viewers to agree and comply with the particular view point that they are attempting to “sell”.
