How to create your own
To follow the photographer’s
favorite motto - A beautiful picture speaks a thousand words, and rightly so. A
motivational poster can be a simple and clean source of inspiration that will
help create a vivid impact in the mind of your audience. Creating your own
motivational poster is easy, fast and a great way to “sell” your corporate or
Microsoft PowerPoint is a great
tool that empowers us with fantastic ways to create a compelling poster. You
also don’t need a diploma in Photoshop to get the job done properly and
professionally. Whether you want to use portrait mode or landscape it up to you.
It is a fact that landscape photos are the most common forms of
demotivational posters online and
rather tend to go well with portrait. However, this is strictly up to you and
solely limited to your imagination.
Clipart offers a multitude of clipart for your project but you can google or
bing image search for a much wider choice of artwork. Stock photography sites
sxc.hu offer professional photos you can use. Be careful with copyrights
and make sure you read the conditions of usage. All stock photos have clearly
specified labels where they can and cannot be used so make sure you follow the
rules. This is very important and will keep you from trouble! We
recommend you use only pictures of high resolution for your project as low-res
photos tend to output shabby looking results.
look at a traditional motivational poster (see picture above), you can see that
the format consists of a catchy bold text superimposed on an image that reflects
the message of the text. The text is short but well-thought. Use a catchy
headline with smaller subtext if you need to that will help the user identify it
with the photo. There are many varieties of posters and prints you can create,
and a myriad of choices depending from audience to audience. Browse through our
website for more ideas on your next poster project.
