Author's abstract: I contend current American print advertising relies on the objectification of the body, both male and female, in conjunction with the use of utopian ideals to sell products. The nature of the print ad and mass media is such that they gratuitously inform our cultures ideas on gender and normalcy. By depicting unrealistic images of normalcy and unattainable representations of beauty, advertising not only creates consumer anxiety to purchase products beyond economic means, but also to manipulate our bodies unnaturally, and it creates tension in relations between genders. As a Graphic Designer, I strive to not only reverse this process in my work but to inform and educate viewers on these issues using the same medium within which the issue lies, print. INDEX WORDS: Objectification in Print Advertising, Sexism in Advertising, Contemporary views on Advertising, Graphic Design and Advertising.

The authors suggest that advertisments, while important in our daily emotional self-management, are far more closely linked to the pragmatics of everyday life than their symbolic richness might suggest. Recent trends in advertisment content point to an important shift in our relationship to goods that reflects an increasing preoccupation with risk management.

The pictures in television commercials, magazine advertisements and other forms of advertising often convey meanings that cannot be expressed as well, or at all, through words or music. Visual Persuasion is an exploration of the uniquely visual aspects of advertising. Because of the implicit nature of visual argumentation and the relative lack of social accountability which images enjoy in comparison with words, pictures can be used to make advertising claims that would be unacceptable if spelled out verbally. From this starting point, Paul Messaris analyzes a variety of commercial, political and social issue advertisements. He also discusses the role of images in cross-cultural advertising.

How do pictures—both moving and still—create for us an almost palpable world of objects and events? With this question in mind, Paul Messaris analyzes the process by which people interpret and respond to visual media (movies, TV, photographs, drawings, and the arts) and discusses the social and political agendas that may underlie the use of visual manipulation.

Over the past twenty-five years the relationship between art and advertising has become increasingly varied and complex, with artists appropriating the billboards and neon displays of the ad world, and advertising strategies borrowing both the tactics and imagery of contemporary art. This wide-ranging book charts key points of contact, overlap and exchange between the two fields. Joan Gibbons looks at the work of a number of artists from Barbara Kruger, Les Levine and Victor Burgin though to Sylvie Fleurie and Swetlana Heger and at cutting edge advertising campaigns including Benson's Silk Cut, Benetton's Shock of Reality and US agency Wieden and Kennedy's work for Nike. She discusses too the various collaborations and crossovers between art and advertising: the work of artist, director and creative Tony Kaye; adman turned collector Charles Saatchi and the issues of celebrity and branding that surround him; and the endorsement of art by highly branded products such as Absolut Vodka, to show that art and advertising are more mutually enriching than ever.

In their attempts to create effective ads, ad producers circumscribe identities of people based on demographics, behavior metrics, or a host of other measures intended to define what the industry calls "target audiences." With the belief that target audience members share wants, needs and values, ad producers build constellations of audiovisual signifiers that they believe will resonate with target audience members. These signifiers borrow from cultural narratives and myths to tell stories about brands and products, and communicate how people's lived experiences might be transformed through consumption practices.
