Studies have proven that one-fourth of a person's brain is devoted to processing visuals. With that much brainpower in the mix, you need to know how to reach your audience visually. It's critical that you understand the sweet spot of any image, the pitfalls of poor editing, how to pace your pictures, and what exactly goes into creating an engaging scene. You should also know just how much time your audience will need to properly take in your images.

In this Take 10, Dan Hill, an expert in consumer and employee behavior, uses insights provided by eye-tracking studies to explain why certain images have such tremendous impact. He shows you what makes for captivating images, offers colorful examples of brilliant ads, and shares practical tips on connecting with your audience through visuals.


Dan Hill is a recognized authority on the role of emotions in consumer and employee behavior. He has authored several books on the subject including, most recently, About Face: Ten Secrets to Emotionally Effective Advertising. Dan heads up Sensory Logic, an "emotional insights consultancy," and his work has been highlighted in Malcolm Gladwell's Blink as well as in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and USA Today.
