Visual Impact Assessment

Visual Impact Analysis (VIA) for Print Campaigns

So, you’ve got the design covered. Everything looks great and your boss signed it off with a smile. All’s good with the world.

But, how do you know your design is going to do its job? How do you know the person who picks up the print – who looks at your website – who’s on the page where your key product messages and calls to action are displayed – how do you know they’re actually looking at your design or messaging as you intended?

It’s an age-old problem. We design in order to communicate more effectively and to drive an action, but how do we know it works? And if it’s not working, what do we need to improve?

The great news is, we can now apply science to the problem.

Using our Visual Impact Assessment eye-tracking tools, we can analyse where people’s gaze is drawn – helping you to understand:

  • Which areas get the most attention
  • Which path the eye will follow across the design
  • Which elements need further work/attention
  • How to lead the reader towards your calls to action
  • How to maximise impact and ROI from your designs

Here’s some key points about VIA:

  • Great for print and website pages
  • Works on store planograms and packaging
  • It's based on decades of eye-tracking research

We can assess and optimise webpages and forms too

Actionable Insight

We can provide analyses of all your designs – so you can adjust the design and re-test until you get the impact you’re looking for. That analysis includes heatmaps that show which areas are getting the most attention and an understanding of the likely path the eye will follow across your designs.

You can zone in on specific visual elements too and we’ll provide scores showing how your areas of interest perform as well as multi-page pdf reports summarising all your visual attention analysis scores.

We can also work with your design and marketing teams to improve your campaigns at the creative and design stages before you go to print, giving you every chance to maximise returns on every penny spent.
