Assignment: (Description and Analysis of a Visual Text)
Write a three-to-four page essay that analyzes a print advertisement image as visual text. Choose one of the print advertisements linked here.

All products are created to meet a need, either an existing need or one manufactured by the creator of the product (for example, how many people thought they “needed” an iPhone before Apple showed them what the device could do for them?). Choose one of the print advertisements linked here.

In your introduction/thesis, inform your reader about the need that the product being advertised is designed to meet. You must summarize the intended message of the image (what is the advertiser’s purpose? what is the advertiser’s argument/claim? to whom is the advertiser making the argument/claim?) AND offer your assessment of whether the advertiser has been successful in conveying the message. In other words, you are expected to explain the advertiser’s argument and then offer a response that assesses the advertiser’s argument.
Then you must break the print advertisement down into its parts (text, graphics, objects, implications, and so on) and explain to the reader how each part contributes to the advertiser’s argument/claim.

Finally, you must support your assessment of the argument/claim’s success.
