  1. Advertising is fascinating to me. Not only are the multitude of ad types interesting, and the different ways to use each one, but the science behind figuring out how to reach your audience is intriguing. Targeting an ad on Michigan apparel in the Columbus area makes zero sense, and would infuriate the majority of the population. Finding out how to reach the audience, developing an ad idea that will drag them in and designing the ad are all major aspects in the advertising industry. The funny thing is I never even realized these things until I started taking communication classes for my major.
