Watching television for two hours straight is not something I partake in on a usual basis, but it was interesting to see the elements and principles of design used in the programs and commercials to attract the viewers. I decided to watch a sitcom program, “Seinfeld”, which is nearly the greatest television show in the history of television. During this television show I noticed a lot of use of mass and form and rhythm on the buildings and other things that were shown during the television show. The show takes place in the heart of New York City so during the show; you can see much of the architecture and art that surrounds the big apple. I also see lots of texture on some of the clothing that is depicted on the actors and actresses in the comedy show. Obviously it wasn’t just the program I was watching, I unfortunately had to sit through some pretty boring and irrelevant commercials, but it was intriguing to see all the use of the elements and principles of design in order to promote the product the company is advertising. During the commercials, I definitely found it to be more colorful and more usage of shape than the television program. In order to be able to successfully market the specific product or business in commercials, one needs to make the advertisement attractive, non-controversial, and informational. I believe that I also saw many commercials involving balance and proportion. In order for a commercial to be not all crazy and well done, it should have some balance involved in the images the advertisement is showing because that creates a sense of calmness and it also reminds the viewer that the company producing the advertisement is not trying to badger you in to purchasing their product or service. I think the values being demonstrated in this particular television show are friendship and being an overall happy person. I believe the use of warm colors…...

...In the National Gallery ”In the National Gallery” is a short story by Doris Lessing form 2007. The themes in the story are that older are more patient than younger, a person can be attracted by another without showing it, and you must follow the time otherwise it can become ugly. The narrator is first person point of view “She was the boss girl in this group, even if nit officially a head girl or monitor” (page 3, line 43). The narrator has an objective sight, but the narrator reflects and interprets what he sees. Therefore gets the reader a subjective view on the text. Because it is his thoughts we read. “Her eyes focused, on the great brilliant horse, so close, towering there on the golden canvas, on his hind legs.” (page 4, line 102) The French girl did not say anything about the horse; therefore can the narrator not tell what the French girl thinks about the horse. We only get the narrator thoughts therefore the narrator becomes unreliable. Strubbs horse is a symbol of the older man. “But then a man sat down, on the other side of the bench’s arm and he leaned forward, elbows on knees, and locked hard at the horse” (Page 1, Line 19). Before had the horse an important role in the society. Every great leader in history has sat on a horseback, because it was a strong, powerful, and fast. Now we only use the horse as a hobby. When the older man was young he was a strong and marvellous man. He cut pick up a sixteen-year-old girl when he just where twelve years old. ”She...

In the National Gallery

...In the National Gallery (A) In the following paper I’m going to analyse and interpret the short story ‘‘In the National Gallery’’ which is written by Doris Lessing and published in 2007. In the story we are introduced to the narrator who tells about a visit at the National Gallery. The narrator’s name and gender is unknown to the reader, In the beginning at the story we follow the narrator into an art gallery. The narrator’s intention was to sit in the middle of the room and spend an hour just looking at one single painting. This painting turns out to be the painting of a chestnut horse which is painted by George Stubbs. As the narrator describes the painting it was a huge painting of a big horse. ‘’And there it was, the Stubbs chestnut horse, that magnificent beast, all power and potency and from the central benches I could see it well’’ (L. 4 P. 1). The narrator expected that he/she would be alone in observing the painting, but soon an old man sat down at the other side at the bench. He was about sixty years old, well dressed, and seemed very interested in the painting. A few moments later he is joined by a younger man, who is evidently his student or younger family member. The old man starts to tell him about the panting in somehow this is annoying for the young man and he exclaiming that ‘’you can’t make a silk purse out of me, I keep telling you’’ (L.23 P.1). This shows us that the old man is trying to pass on some of his knowledge and experience, and trying to teach...

... CASE LANCER GALLERY Lancer gallery adalah suatu perusahaan yang menjual berbagai macam artifak authentic dari Amerika selatan dan Africa. Jika dilihat kasus diatas bahwa, ada beberapa point yang ingin kami sampaikan yaitu : • Lancer gallery cukup baik menjalankan strategi dengan menjual artifak replica dengan kualitas detil yang hampir sama dengan artifak asli dimana pertimbangan ini dilakukan untuk mengambil cakupan customer (market driven; berorientasi pasar) yang lebih luas karena permintaan customer yang tinggi terhadap artifak replica. • Produk dijual secara eksklusif di toko dan department store yang menjual barang-barang artifak secara eksklusif. • Produk yang dijual mempunyai keunikan (distinctive) Permasalahan yang dihadapi : • Artifak tidak mudah didapat karena terkait dengan kondisi politik di Africa yang tidak stabil yang membatasi dalam memasok barang. • Kompetitor semakin bertambah banyak karena melihat dari Lancer Gallery yang sukses menjual artifak asli dan replika sehingga dengan mudahnya para pesaing mengikuti menjual barang-barang serupa. • Persaingan ditingkat retail juga terjadi dimana para eksklusif department store dan para penjual artifak lainnya melakukan pembelian langsung ke suku etnis Africa dan Amerika Selatan, hal ini dilakukan untuk mendapatkan margin yang lebih dan menekan harga jual yang lebih murah kepada customer. • Para penjual replika artifak Afrika dan Amerika Selatan semakin banyak, produk yang dijual......

...Case Analysis: Lancer Gallery Executive Summary We have recommendations for Lancer Gallery based on the acceptance and the rejection of the contract proposal from the mass-distribution store. The first recommendation is for Lancer Gallery to accept the contract’s conditions. We suggest that the company increase the production of the artifacts replicas. The second recommendation is that Lancer Gallery creates two separate divisions for the company. The first division will focus on replicas while the second division focuses on the authentic artifacts. The third recommendation is that Lancer Gallery increase their supply and promotions. We suggest they add new authentic products, and conduct research for other countries they can pursue for authentic artifacts such as India. They should increase the promotion for Lancer authentic artifacts to emphasize differentiation from the competitors. Statement of the Problem Lancer Gallery must decide whether or not to forgo the contract that was offered to them by a mass-merchandise department store chain in early January 2010. The contract stated that the department store chain would buy at 10% below the company’s existing prices for no less than $750,000. Lancer Gallery stands to make $ 4 million annually. The objective for Lancer Gallery is to increase their revenue growth that has slowed down due to the recession. The constraint is that if Lancer Gallery decides to take the contract, they would be changing the direction of the......

...AIn the National Gallery Memories are small pieces of our life stored and kept in our minds and hearts. We can use these memories to cast light over a day where there has only been darkness, to bring a smile up on our friends faces when they are feeling down, or even to learn from any mistakes we have made in the past. It is like a tool we use to overcome the present time, but some people dwell in the past and use it to hide from their present life, and it is here that problems occur. In the short story ”In the National Gallery” by Doris Lessing, from 2007, we follow the narrator, a person who is interested in art and would like to know more about it, to an art gallery “How much I would have liked to know as much as he did, and to share his passion for Stubbs and the horse, but only phrases reached me.” (P. 1, L. 15). The gender of the narrator is unknown to the reader, indicating that the narrator in the story could be Doris Lessing herself. The story is told through a first person narrative which makes the information we get very subjective, leading to the distortion of what is true or false, and making the reader rely on the narrator. The point of view of this story also makes the narrator very passive, as the narrator sits in the middle of the room and describes what is going on around him/her. The narrator is not important to the plot and the only time the narrator interacts with the other characters in the story, is when she talks to the older man. Though the......

...MKT – 420 / / / / Case Study 2 / / 09-30-2014 Lancer Gallery Case Lancer Gallery started in the 1900s. Their headquarters are based in 4 major US cities but they consider Phoenix, Arizona home. They are a large company that have a well-respected reputation for sourcing and selling African and South American artefacts and replicas, along with Native American pottery and jewellery. Problem Definition Lancers current problem as a company is deciding whether they want to reposition themselves. Being a part of such a specialised and particular market makes repositioning a higher risk for them. A department store has approached Lancer with an offer that would increase annual revenues by $4m but would require the organisation to mass produce replicas. Being that Lancer are known for offering top quality products they have to decide whether or not they want to make the shift and become a company that also mass produces replicas, much like their competitors. In turn, Lancer would run the risk of losing their image as being exclusive. They are known for their limited distribution and this is part of what set them apart from competing companies in the market. Statement of Alternatives A. Accept the contract from the mass department store B. Decline the contract from the mass department store Analysis of Alternatives A. Accept the contract from the mass department store; Pros – The first and most obvious advantage that pertains to accepting the contract is that...

The Tv

...The TV Those endless days, the same routines, the same people, the same complications at work, nothing new is meeting you. Life has become a routine, and suddenly you see no point with it. You stay home one day, watching some television, and discover that life is just in front of you. You see the same person over and over again in different TV-shows, and realise it could be you. Maybe life isn’t so bad and routine marked after all. The story The TV is written by Ben Loory and published in the newspaper The New Yorker in April 2010. The story is about a man that stays home from work one day, because he is sick, and like most of us would do when we are sick, he lays on the couch all day and watches television. When suddenly he finds a show he wants to watch, and he wonders. The main character seems so familiar, and the show is so long. Afterwards he takes a shower, and realises, the show was about him, he was the main character. The story starts in medias res, which is a common characteristic for short stories. An omniscient third-person narrator tells the story. “In the morning, the man awakens confused… He feels as if he were forgetting something..” P. 2, l 47, the narrator knows how our main character thinks and feels, which works really well because, the main character has so many different thoughts and feelings about seeing him self in the television, so it makes it easier to understand the story. The name on our main character is not stated, and somehow it......

...The word family brings all kinds of thoughts into a person’s mind. Family can stand for anything that has to do with a group of people that have something in common. Most people believe family has to do with blood related people or people who enter a family through marriage but there is much more to the word family than that. A family can range from two people to just about any amount of people. A family is not just started from a mother and father, a family can be teammates, fans of a specific team, people that share a common interest, or any other way of collecting people into groups known as families. In the art gallery there are a variety of ways that family is represented but there were two pieces that grabbed my attention. The first piece of art that represented family to me was by the artist Stefan Abrams. The artwork was named Dopplegangers and it was composed of seven photographs stacked on top of one another which were about two feet in width and nine feet in height. In the pictures were two people that looked similar, wore similar clothes, were doing the same action, or were fans of the same sports team. That represents family because you do not need to be brothers to be family, you can be friends that share a common interest and you are a family. All of the New York Yankee fans in this world are all a family because they cheer for the same team and when they win everyone is happy and when they lose everyone is hurt. In the expression, “you win as a team, and......

Gallery Critique

...Gallery Critique On October 30, 2013, I went to UWL gallery to see amazing works of art. I had a deep impression on a picture named No One Will Ever Know that is made by Izel Vargas. 1. Firstly, I would like to discuss the use of color in this picture. Wearing a dark green T-shirt, with two broken and bloody arms, holding a dark black gun, a policeman whose head is an arguing man and woman is in the picture. The hues of this artwork are red, green, orange and yellow, and each hue has a value. The artist uses a dark value of pure red, green and yellow, a light value of pure orange. Similarly, the tint of this picture is light orange, and shades of this picture are dark red, green and yellow. For example, the skin of the arms are light orange; the bloody arms are dark red; the T-shirt is dark green; the logos of the shirt are dark yellow. The artist also uses the neutral colors which are white, black, dark black and dull brown. For example, the gun and leather belt are dark black; the background of the arguing man and woman is white; the background of the whole picture is black. The artist used the color temperature. The dark red of the bloody arms and dark green of T-shirt are warm, because the background is black that is the cooler color. 2. Secondly, I want to describe the use of line in this picture. The processes used in this particular work are contour line, hatching and cross-hatching. The artist uses the contour line to draw the outer edge of the man, woman and......

Lancer Gallery

...Lancer Gallery’s Background Lancer Gallery headquartered is located in Phoenix, Arizona that sources and sells South American and African artifacts from Southwestern India’s (especially Hopi and Navajo) authentic jewelry and pottery. Lancer Gallery began in the early 1990s as a trading post operation near Tucson, Arizona. Lancer gradually expanded its product line to include pre-Columbian artifacts from Peru and Venezuela. Lancer built a national reputation as one of the most respected sources of South American and African artifacts. In 2001, Lancer expanded its product line to replicas of authentic artifacts but only a small portion of total Lancer sales. The company has gross sales of $35 million and has seen a 20 percent increase every year for the past decade. According to Rangard, the artifacts became rare because South American artifacts aren’t always easy to get and the government also restricts certain artifacts because of their national significance. In early January 2010, a mass-merchandise department store offered a contract to carry a full line of Lancer’s products. The offer has total estimated revenue of $4 million annually, with an initial purchase of no less than $750,000 at 10% below the company’s existing prices. And that contract will increase revenue growth because revenue growth has slowed due to the recession. But the company would have to triple its replica production to meet demands for this contract.

The Tv

...The Impact of personal finance and behavior on television The impact of our personal finance has been affected by our society, culture, economy, moral and ethics behavior all our life’s with the use of the television. Television has a very important part of our lives as humans. It how we get our latest new, deals, entertainment even communication. But how does the television impact our personal finance? Without the television there would not be any TV ads and what do TV ads do try and get customer to buy new products. Industries spend millions, even billions of dollars to win our hearts and minds, and to influence our choices towards their products and ideas. According to the A.C. Nielsen Co., the average American watches more than 4 hours of TV each day (or 28 hours/week, or 2 months of nonstop TV-watching per year). In a 65-year life, that person will have spent 9 years glued to the tube. The number of TV commercials seen by the by age 65 is 2 million. (Norman Herp) But why are commercial ads use and are important? One reason they give us as costumer’s information we may not know on product we want to buy. Like when Toyota is having a new car deal or when Macys is having a one day sale. How the new IPhone is 5g and the day it comes out. All the television commercials give us information on item we think we may need or have an interest in. But the way some of the television ads are advertised can have a negative way of influencing our decision making. The media......
