Analysis of the Archers advert.

Extracts from this document...


Analysis of the Archers advert When we first look at the Archers Advert the primary optical area (POA) is a beautiful young woman. The primary optical area is the first place the eye goes when looking at an advertisement. The reason that this woman is POA is because she is dressed in white, modern clothing which contrasts with the dark gothic style background.
