High School Baseball Coaches, This One’s For You

“Create some sort of graphic. Design the overall graphic to convey some sort of feeling or theme, but then have text saying something completely contradictory to the theme or feeling. Sort of like one of those old anti-motivational posters, but with more design than a black box with a white frame.”

Contradiction Creation

This is based on those motivational posters only found in counselors or high school coaches’ offices. Like so…

So I had to flip the script. ‘Give up’ seemed appropriate and was the first idea that popped into my head. Once I found good references for the style I was going for, I thought of the byline, chose a photo of an army guy because so many of the similar posters had military people in them, and voilá! I used photopea and also a little bit of preview to add the words, lines, and white and black borders. Hey, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. I spent a lot of time trying to find a similar font, but I think I nailed that part at least.

Now, after some light digging, I found that this style of poster is also popular with fans of a certain show whose name rhymes with ‘Moy of Mainting’.

Some of these are just as inspirational as the one I made…

^now this is just some good fun…

Feel free to print and frame {mine or the B Ross ones} for some great office decor!
