Speaking a Common Lingo With Copywriters
“I’d like the eyebrow in bold, much smaller than the main head but big enough to be obvious.”
What gives here? It sounds like the person talking to you has mistaken you for a hair stylist. But no. He’s a copywriter trying to explain something he has in mind for the design of the sales piece he wrote.
An eyebrow is a mini-headline that precedes the main headline. It can be a very effective addition to the headline … if written and formatted correctly. And getting it formatted correctly depends on clear communication between the copywriter and the designer … which can be difficult.
Fact is, although copywriters have a lingo all their own, it’s easy to learn. And when you learn it, you’ll be able to work with every copywriter more efficiently and effectively … and profitably.
