White Text on a Black Background.

David Ogilvy HATES white text on a black background. I’m being serious… He states this fact at least 5 times in his book Ogilvy on Advertising. Statistics show that inverse text reduces readership. But I’m not trying to sell you anything, so hopefully this won’t upset the advertising gods out there. Please prove the legendary Ad Man wrong and read this quote because its content is well-written. 

It’s fun to break the rules sometimes, no?

2. Sell us one of the following: • A colander • A used match • A queue (300 words maximum)

Throwing a surprise birthday party for your girlfriend? Did you make a mess and need to get rid of your mum for a couple hours? Need to make grandma feel helpful?

No worries. Send them to buy some TQ branded item. TQ can guarantee that the designated person will wait in The Queue to purchase simple products. For the FIRST time ever, we sell time. You can gain a short break by purchasing a queue for loved ones. Or enemies. The choice is yours.

Queue begins here.
