My attention was drawn to the humorous Design Week diary having a pop at The Workroom for its use of clichÃ© in the article Knob that opens doors to new opportunities (DW 12 July).
In the same issue, DW’s own subscription card insert was touting for subscribers with a picture of a triumphant tennis player [in timing with Wimbledon] and the line “give yourself the advantage…”. The second part of the insert showed a mountaineer silhouetted in the sunset atop a lofty peak. This classic image bore the heading “want to reach the top…”.
Despite laborious searching, I could not find a picture of either a practicing preacher, or a kettle and a black pot to submit with this letter.
