Thus, let us take a look at some hints in the advertising arts graphic design and its impact on the advertising efficiency.
The arts graphic design in advertising has to work hand in hand with psychology, since colors, shapes, forms as well as other design techniques may cause a great impact on the consumers' perception of your company and advertising messages. Moreover, your design in great measure can determine the consumers' attitude and their further actions, based on that perception and gained from your ads. Creating your ad design, you have to understand that visual images are much stronger and much more effective in communication than texts. They are much more quickly perceived and interpreted by people.
Installing the arts graphic design in your advertising, you have to keep in mind the way people interpret and perceive things. According to psychology, most people tend to view the whole picture and only then they break it down to separate pieces. This is how they interpret your ads as well. Let us consider an example. The person, who sees a flower-bed, first perceives it as a whole and only then he or she pays attention to separate flowers planted on it. Not until later this person would 'break down' that flower-bed and pay attention to what kind of flowers are planted there and to their number.
The same things happen when people see your ads. First, they see them as a whole and only then they break them down into separate pieces, such as texts, images, pictures, logos, etc. Therefore, engaging into the process of advertising arts graphic design, you have to make an attempt to design your ad as something whole, which makes a positive impression. Only in this case, when your consumers can easily perceive and interpret your ads as something valid and positive to them, they will proceed with breaking them into more fragmented pieces and interpret them.
