The purpose of visual communication is that it can spread importance about a topic to a wide range of people. It is more efficient than verbal communications if seeking to communicate a marketing or advertising message to hundreds or thousands of people in diverse geographic areas. Visual communication allows a message to be viewed through images that stand out more than verbal or written, allowing diverse people to understand the meaning behind the advertisement or marketing.
A charity will be in need of a diary cover as it can spread information about the charity to diverse and different age groups. As majority of individuals use a diary to be organised and remember important dates, a diary cover that is promoting the charity can impact on the individual by having it as the front cover and always being there to remind the individual about the charity.
The visual communication will be used to create a Diary Cover for the charity chosen. It will be used to spread the awareness of Charity Water and their aim to bring clean and safe drinking water to developing countries. This visual communication will be likely seen around stores that will sell the diary and on the charities website.
