In this article, we intend to decipher the most important codes that contribute to the creation of an efficient advertising message. Methodologically, the print advertising message is approached through the semio-rethoric-discursive and psycho-communicational perspectives that can reveal its complex significations beyond the immediate perception of the receiver. Although having a distinct role and a specific manifestation, each code contributes to the creation of a homogenous and persuasive message, together with all the other codes. Besides this multi-layering of codes, the advertising communication stakes on the transmitter, the channel, the referent and the receiver in order to create a persuasive rhetorical, unique and seductive message. All these instances that sustain the process of communication operate in a strategic-discursive dynamic relation to generate a unique icono-textual message that attracts the potential consumer to a perfect world, in which his/her needs are fulfilled.
