This advertisement insists that nothing is added to the milk shake. The cow in the advertisement is also healthy further asserting that the milkshakes is healthy. Overall the advertisement is well colored and keeps the viewer in suspense as to what is going on. There are only four colors in the advertisement, all warm and appealing to the audience.
A number of elements of design are well represented in the picture. The line plays its primary roles accordingly. It outlines the shapes of the cow and trampoline well. The line also creates movement and emphasis, and it finally it develops patterns and texture in the picture.
The artistic elements of shape and mass are also consequently embodied in the advert; they elaborate the different dimensions and make the boundaries between the trampoline and the cow easily identifiable.
The picture shows it is a bright day. The designer used the sunlight to create shadow patterns and also lead to the formation of dramatic effects. In design, value is the lightness or darkness of a color and its main purpose is to show the important aspects of the advert. The brightly colored cow is what is important in the advertisement.
