Cartoons are such effective communicators. We grow up with cartoons and become used to the way they function from an early age. This means that the cartoonist, or a manager using a cartoon to deliver a message, has a pre-primed audience. Cartoons can be used powerfully in advertising across many industries.
Often public service communications will contain cartoons to illustrate their message, or to underline the written content of the message, just to ensure that those who are either illiterate or non-native speaking will grasp the meaning. Government certainly understands the importance of cartoons, and it can be the ideal way to make sure health and safety messages are heeded.
