Commercial art is the art of artistic, creative services, referring to art created for commercial purposes, primarily advertising. Commercial art uses various platforms (magazines, websites, apps, television, etc.) for viewers to promote the sale and interest of illustrations, services, and concepts. It depends on the iconic image (pictorial representations recognized quickly by members of culture) to enhance recall and auspicious recognition for a product or service. An example of a product could be a magazine ad promoting a new soda through complementary colors, a catchy message, and appealing illustrative features. Another example could be promoting global warming by encouraging people to walk or ride a bike instead of driving in an eye-catching poster. It communicates something specific to an audience.
