They may probably be just right for the target audience - if the target audience is the kind of people who would definitely use the toughness of the car in road traffic, and believe being stronger makes one right. As for me, they are alliterating a crude message. No hint of subtlety, no wit, no distance to self, no humor. And this lack of distance talks to ...

The envelope line is almost certainly referring to one of two things: 1.) An actual envelope line. If you're functioning as a designer of sorts, as I used to, then your colleague may be simply referring to the physical placement of elements on the envelope. Perhaps what your colleague needs you to do is to move a design element because it interferes with ...

For anyone ever wondering, I got some solid feedback from two freelancer friends that work in advertising and for advertising freelancers, no matter the discipline or hourly fee dependent on weighting; here's what they advise. If you work on a Friday outside of regular work hours - normal hourly rate. Saturdays - X 1.5 normal hourly rate. Sunday - X 2 ...

Essentially, you're asking, "How can I become a 'punnier' person?" (Or, perhaps more specifically, "What techniques might help me conjure witty puns, rhymes, and play-on-words wordplay more easily?") This is a topic I've mused on for some time. I haven't done any formal research on the subject, but I've observed that some people can pen their parody, ...

Is "the easiest way to earn rewards online at the click of a button" a tag phrase you have to use? It seems a bit awkwardly worded to me. How about "the easiest way to earn rewards online at the click of a button" I would change "Hit up our link sharing section instead." to "Hit up Visit our link sharing section instead." Also, "you can chance your ...

If this is a script being read over a video, then use #1, as #2 doesn't give enough information. It makes me want to hunt around and find actual directions. Suggested fixes: I've never heard "chance" being used as a verb to mean "gamble." Try "wager" the first time and "the more points you bet" the second. "All of our videos are short, entertaining, and ...

No it is not necessary to insure your work before sending it. International law will garantee copyright ownership to the author without any formality. This is stated in the Berne convention in article 5.2, and repeated in the main international treaties on copyright. However, it is necessary to be able to prove that you are the author in casesomeone else ...

I would see the double entendre. As an editor, I would change it to something else. Assemble or install, probably. "Install" to me means "Start with all the pieces, put it together, test to make sure it does what it's supposed to do, and clean up the site afterwards." Installing an exhibition would involve putting it into place, and if that required tools, ...

In the given context the word "erection" does not have any sexual connotations for me. Outside of your question, I would not have thought of erect penises at all. If you feel you must avoid this word, use verbs: "We deliver and erect stands." Or: "The delivery and erecting of stands." Many sexual slang words have non-sexual base meanings and are commonly ...

I'd just approach it like any job: Tell everyone you know you're looking for some work and specifically what you're looking for, and if they know anyone they could introduce you to or if they have any gigs Cold calls/emails to agencies (both ones you'd like to work for and one you wouldn't, having a strong CV only helps over time). Google them, then call ...

I haven't come across any specific data regarding the effect being carried over into print but I doubt it does--right now at least. Firstly, what kind of reading do people do in print? Usually it's of the attention-demanding kind--novels, textbooks--for which they've already made the mental commitment. Certain types of print material (magazines, newspapers) ...

I think the answer to this depends almost entirely on what your terms of contract are with the person or company commissioning you to do the work. If your terms of contract are for work performed in normal working hours, ie 9 - 6pm Monday to Friday then any over work demanded outside those hours would attract a premium hourly rate. Particularly if the over ...
