10-31 Happy Halloween!
Happy Halloween from everybody here at The A-Team!
In the spirit of the holiday (no pun intended), we’ve posted a link to an article talking about recent evidence from a series of studies exploring the historical accounts of werewolves in medieval Europe.
As it turns out, the map of “werewolf reports” coincides with a topographical map of Europe. Areas where werewolf attacks were reported matched with areas where the main ingredients in bread was rye which was infected with a fungus. The fungus, studies have shown, had psychedelic side effects.
This explains why there were such panicked and grouped reports of werewolf attacks among the rural and poor populations, they were actually hallucinating and seeing werewolves. Scary!
On that note… Happy Halloween and celebrate safely!
10-17 Focal Points
It’s important to always keep the focal point of a design in the forefront of your mind. What information is the most valuable? Is that what the viewer’s eyes will be drawn to? All too often an ad’s purpose is lost because there are either too many conflicting focal points (areas that fight for the eye’s attention) or there’s not enough contrast to draw your eye anywhere. By using a combination of visual elements, an effective design should draw your eye directly to the most prominent information. After all, communicating an idea to an audience is what advertising is all about!
