Introduction

Introduction Messages in the print media represent design, ideas through the selection, organization of visual elements and get understanding of the point to the readers. Some of the messages intend to inform, others to instruct, identify, entertain or persuade. Persuasive messages are those which intend to influence the purchase of a product or service, as in advertising, or to encourage admission of a position offering on an issue or topics as in propaganda. Of concern here, is the messages which intends to influence chioce or redirect thought. ''An investigation of the rhetorical system and the theory suggests an expanded role for the designers responsible for developing persuasive messages, and also, a way of actively engaging readers in the messages'' Triggs (1995 pg. 12). The designers traditionally found a concept for a picture and decided appropriate typography for the headline text. These three elements, pictures, text and headline are organized into a agreement visual structure and usually balance, which maintains the identity of each element. Moreover, how to design or create rhetoric provide an opportunity to the model of agrement form and allow form to grow structurally as an effective as a whole of the visual and the language which, as a unit declare an understanding idea.

Conclusion

The role traditionally assigned the designer of persuasive messages presented in the print media is one establishing an effective visual rhetoric through art direction or a representation image and selection of advertising. The rarely questioned traditional form of the message, that of a pictures, headline and texts continues to be identified as a message that attempts to sell and tell something. Certainly, application of selected concepts of rhetoric, is an effective means of determining new forms unrestricted by loyalty to conventional models; that is , ''a form which arises naturally from an argument the designer has developed as a persuasive entry point for reading the text'' Nelson (1995 pg. 49).
