Most of the boxes which are drawn are drawn in a dotted line. If you look on the front cover of the booklet, there is a cigarette. It is outlined in a dotted line. In page 3 of the leaflet, there is a detailed graph. When some people read a piece of text, there are some people who like taking in just the evidence. In page 24, there is a broken cigarette. This picture is trying to express the emotion that someone has 'quit'. There is a picture on page 29 which quite reflected the mood. If I was a smoker who wanted to quit, then I would go for this leaflet. I absolutely love it. The way they designed it was marvellous. There is even a contents page.
