It takes a special breed to work at Pale Hose Communications. Advertising is a dog-eat-dog business and therefore, dogged determination to succeed is paramount. It takes someone who can take a bite out of a workload, get on the stick, and run with it. It also helps if, when the fur flies, that person's bark is worse than their bite and they can handle conflict, move on, and let sleeping dogs lie later on. Even when the work has them chasing their tail, we look for a smart associate who can chew right through the fat and get to the meat of the project. But really, the most important quality we value here at Pale Hose Communications is we simply ask that you be housebroken.
So, on that note, I'm proud to introduce Pale Hose Communcations' newest Associate, Opie, whose official title right now is Office Dog in Charge of Document Shredding and Chewing (though after a year or so, he'll be up for promotion to Collections!).
And, if you feel like your advertising is barking up the wrong tree, or you just have something you need chewed to bits then please, give Opie or one of our other Associates a call!
btw, we found Opie through http://www.heartlandlabrescue.com

Once, while trying to solicit some business, a Copywriter/Creative Director looked at my portfolio and said, "You're not a poet." While I understood his meaning, I've always tried to emphasize performance over poetry in my work. (Plus, you rarely see Maya Angelou schlepping Hefty Trash Bags.) Thus, "You're not a poet" became both a badge of honor and a rallying cry. So, what follows are random thoughts on advertising, alarming alliteration, a plethora of punditry, and absolutely no poetry!
