First of all, packaging sizes and the relation between packaging sizes, packaging content, and using similar strategies like adding gifts, are employed in order to lead the consumer into thinking that there is a greater quantity of the product just to deceive them. Secondly, some of the design of the packaging implies wrongful or misleading information. Third, producers imitate another’s packaging in order to imply a certain geographic provenance or quality of the product. Finally, the price may be wrongfully indicated or absent from the packaging. There is a slight degree of uncertainty among consumers about quality of products in the market, and there is obvious mistrust of the communications manufacturers use to attract buyers to those products.
For starters, more than 50% of revenues come from the Japanese market, while the numbers are extremely significant, it’s important for the company not to depend on the Japanese market and build sales elsewhere.

The Aesthetics of Ugliness in Graphic Design Now anti-aesthetic graphical elements in art and design are becoming ubiquitous. Clashing colors, too much or too little spacing in typography, shocking, explicit and distorted imagery- we see it everywhere and they indeed serve a particular purpose in contemporary culture. In postmodern philosophy ugliness is a part of aesthetics as well as beauty.

How the Multimedia Industry Controls Everything “‘Tricky’ Connotations: Wonder Woman as DC's Brand Disruptor” by Charlotte E. Howell’s thesis is “Because this male skewed thinking, comics-based franchises are marketed around this industrial construction of their audience, which creates barriers to producing female-led superhero franchises like Wonder Woman.” (Howell, 142) Howell understands that the media and it’s following always controls, how well the entertainment industry does based on profits. These profits are what makes and breaks a movie, because if the industry feels that a certain movie will not make a big enough profit, it gets cut. Howell does not take into count that the low rates of female-led movies do not just effect superhero films but the industry as a whole.

It is discussed in the journal that Wonder Woman was part of the feminist movement for woman’s right but my question towards Howell is how come it is only being produced now?
