Bumper Stickers ...an exploration in visual rhetoric
- According to a blog on Esurance.com, bumper stickers have been a part of our conversation since 1927. Many of the first examples focused on politics, but as we all know, in modern times the message can be anything.
- Some include images while others consist entirely of words, usually in the forms of short phrases and fragments.
- All incorporate the principles of visual rhetoric: font (typography), color, shapes, images. They convey a specific tone regarding a message and evoke a certain mood in the audience.
