This piece above is very creative as it incorporates names of each respective nation of the world and does so in a manner that forms the proportional shape of those nations. With that said, the unconventional style caught my eye and I feel that the word-form format enhances communication as it demonstrates visual prominence of big countries vs. small counties as opposed to traditional maps that otherwise illustrate large land mass surrounded by borders.

The gloomy visual illustrates the love lost with foster teens who lack parental support year after year as they grow up. The manipulation techniques used here really portrays mood, and it is something I will use more for demonstrating that effect in my work.

This ad on the right is even more eye-catching; it depicts a disembodied skull and body getting ready to fasten itself like a seatbelt. Yes, this ad is to warn young drivers and even the older ones about the dangers of not wearing a seatbelt, or else—one consequence is what is illustrated in the ad. It’s noted that layers and masks were used here for effects and enhances communication clearly and quite eerily. I also use layers and masks and I will continue to do so in my work.
