  1. Verbal Techniques

  2. Verbal technique: Hyperbole A deliberate exaggeration used for humorous effect or to emphasise a feeling. Examples: • I could eat a horse. • I told you a thousand times! • I had a ton of homework. • If I don't get these jeans, I will DIE! • He's 900 years old.

  3. Verbal technique: Simile • A phrase that compares two things using ‘like’ or ‘as’.

  4. Verbal technique: Metaphor Comparing two things without using ‘like’ or ‘as’. A metaphor says two things are the same. Examples: • He had a heart of stone. • Her eyes were darting searchlights. • Her elderly fingers were thin gnarled branches. • His hair was a fierce lion's mane.

  5. Verbal technique: Colloquial language Relaxed and informal language that is used in common conversation. It is used by a writer to give a passage a local flavour. Examples: • A few logs short of a barbie. • Bloke. • Bob's your Uncle. • Togs.

  6. Verbal technique: Rhetorical question • A question that makes a suggestion more than it demands an answer. They are used to involve the audience and make them think about the idea.

  7. Verbal technique: Alliteration • The repetition of consonant sounds, usually at the beginning of words. It draws our attention to a particular line, can slow or speed up our reading, and helps to make headlines easier to remember.

  8. Verbal technique: Onomatopoeia When the sound of the word imitates/suggests the meaning or noise of the action described. Onomatopoeia is used to help the reader understand what is being described.

  9. Verbal technique: Repetition • When words/phrases are repeated for emphasis. • Repetition helps keep an idea in your mind.

  10. Verbal technique: Imperatives • An order or a command often used in advertising. Examples: • Buy it now! • Call us now! • Come in and see us!

  11. Visual Techniques

  12. Visual technique: Colour • Designers need to carefully select which colours they use on a static image. Some colours are brighter and more eye-catching. The colours used should also be suitable for the image. You wouldn’t use pink to sell a heavy metal CD!

  13. Visual technique: Lettering • There are many options available with lettering: different fonts, sizes, upper or lower case, italic or bold. Font should be easy to read and, if it needs to be seen from a distance, it needs to have large lettering. Example: Easy to read? Easy to read? Easy to read? Easy to read? Easy to read? Easy to read?

  14. Visual technique: Pictures/illustrations • Is important that a picture is clear and a suitable size. It also needs to be appropriate to the message of the advertisement. Buy food from McDonald’s.

  15. Visual technique: Dominant image • Feature that first grabs a viewer’s attention. Advertisement designers think carefully about what it is they first want people to see as if often effects whether they will look at the advertisement more closely.

  16. Visual technique: Symbol • A thing or drawing of a thing generally accepted as represented something or some quality. Example: • Lion = courage • Cross = death, Christianity • Teardrop = sadness
