Savile Lumley

Interpreting images from different cultures and the past - The UK was not as progressive as much of the rest of the world in terms of design. We were still stuck on family values and the comfortable family home images. Even though this image by Savile Lumley and the Peter Behren image below are communication different messages, they are both targeting a similar audience. This demonstrates how our different cultures viewed design and how the messages were read. However, I still think it is an effective piece of design as it involves the audience and talks directly to them.
