Visually Persuading Your Viewer
Prepare and evaluate the use of media visuals to improve persuasive and marketing communication.
You are a visual communication expert for a company that creates and maintains websites for large businesses and organizations. They called a meeting a few days ago to bring various departments together for a “think tank” session. The goal of this session was to update the images and visual elements on the website of your newest client: a large medical facility’s website. Currently, they are using the same website images across all websites in the following American locations: New York City, Miami, Phoenix, and Denver.
As the meeting progressed, several people posed several situational conversations. You took careful notes during the meeting, and as you review them at home, you decide to create a Talking Points to address all the issues discussed.
Prepare your talking points as if someone had to use them for a seven minutespresentation. The talking points should outline the importance of using cultural familiarity, perspective framing, and emotional appeal in order to visually persuade viewers in all of these different locations. For clarity, you decide to include specific visual images and examples that could replace current website images for each situation. Plan to include explanations to prove your points to the other “think tank” members.
