Humor is born from the frisson between the actual and the ideal; from this tension, we come to know ourselves and our world. Humor isn't just for splash pages and introductions. Use humor as one of the signature moves to enliven your image. Newsletters, articles, blogs, videos, apps, and marketing presentations are all enhanced with insight, irony, wit, and clever wordplay. It's a crowded field out there: Stand apart from your competitors with humor and use levity in sensational slogans, cool taglines, and brilliant websites. Gather accolades and earn loyalty from your fans with wisdom and wit that is based upon a fulcrum of integrity and humor.
