‘Noise’ (in design)

A new design term that I have learnt which basically sums up possible flaws and inconvenient issues with a design being displayed in the real world:


  • Obstruction
  • Distraction e.g. Another advert nearby attracting more attention
  • Electrical issues
  • Light glare
  • Print issues
  • Weather
  • Manual issues e.g. Posters peeling away


  • Misunderstanding
  • Misinterpretation
  • Cultural differences


e.g. Persuasion- was it effective?
