reading response

After reading about hierarchy, i can now understand why i am immediately drawn to certain colors, fonts and words. The placement of the word, the size of the word, and the space around the word are all purposely created in a certain way to accent the importance of the word. I never realized the amount of thought went in to creating ads in magazines, books, and on posters. I also learned that hierarchy is especially used on websites, in order to make them user friendly. For instance, they make search engines accessible by making them larger, or making them stand out by  color or size. I found the usage of hierarchy interesting and i have now become more aware of the hierarchy of words or objects on posters and magazines- Chelsea Tomae
