Interviews and focus groups are consumer orientated as they generate different opinions on a particular subject, giving a critical overview of an advertisement. An interview ‘is an in-depth understanding of a topic that the research informant is able to speak about’ (Belk 2013).
Entertainment has changed tremendously since the 1990's. A few of these changes are positive and beneficial, but I think too many of these changes are negative and harmful, especially to our children, the easily influenced, and those who are disconnected.

The Fool is Lear's own stand-up comedian, but more interestingly, he's the only person that Lear allows to criticize him. The Fool is actually really smart and the only person who tells it like it is, showing that he puts Lear into line when needed.
Metaphors and metonyms are used in advertisements as creative strategies to assist in selling / promoting a product service or idea, throughout this essay I will be analysing how and why metaphors and metonyms are used in designer’s work.
