Daily Inspirations no. 142

Have you ever heard about the Wow factor? It is actually about something, capable to impress one so deeply that he says “Wow!” and his jaw drops immediately. For example, you are getting into a taxi and see that the cab driver is Brad Pitt or Jessica Alba (depending on your preferences) – you say “Wow”, and that is what people call a Wow factor. However, we are here to talk about the Wow factor in art. Actually, visual or graphic design in its multiple incarnations through photography, illustrations, digital painting, cool advertising concepts, graffiti design, etc., is a very powerful generator of the Wow factor effect. Look at the stunning photograph of the panoramic tree or at the illustration of the sexy British patriotic girl, or at the Chevrolet Mi-ray roadster concept below and you’ll understand clearly what Wow factor means…
