WHAT TECHNIQUES/ COMPOSITION FACTORS
HELP EMPHASIZE THE PURPOSE?
• The artist, Richard Read, created a simple to the
point visual by creating a head on vantage point to
get the purpose across. He also uses dark subtle
colors in order to portray a gloomy atmosphere that
fits the objective of the visual properly. The
proportion of the Blackberry to the revolver is similar
and accurate to there actual size. Read went for a
straight to the point visual, lacking bright neon
colors and motion to imitate the negative impact
and severity texting while driving has on our lives.
