Comparison between documents collected from three different organisations.

I have collected six documents from three different organisations, two from each. I collected them contacting these different organisations and asking for the various documents ie. an application form and an invoice. The three organisations I used were, ‘The State University Of New Jersey’, ‘Business serve’ and ‘Wyeth’. For the purpose of this document they will be lettered ‘A’ ‘B’ and ‘C’ in the order previously mentioned. Organisation ‘A’ is a university in America; I collected the documents by emailing them. Organisation ‘B’ is a business dealing in electrics, I visited them in order to collect the documents. Organisation ‘C’ is a pharmacist.

The purpose of ‘A’ is an application form for entering a university. Both ‘B’ and ‘C’ are recruiting staff. Although the basic formats of all three forms are similar in the way there are questions presented to the reader, the reader then answers the questions in the space provided. The layout and context are very different in each.

The colour scheme of both ‘B’ and ‘C’ are black on a white background, but as they are relatively simple documents the lack ...
