Demotivational Posters - 56 picturesAdvanced Photoshop Contest
Studies show that Mondays and Tuesdays are emotionally the "hardest" work days, when people have the lowest motivation to work, after the weekend. There have been numerous motivational posters created to encourage people to work through the week, keep them focused on their duties, and increase their productivity. Such posters typically had a black background with an encouraging image in the middle, a clear big word below (meant to send a message, or command to workers' minds) and a motivational message to go with this word. Not surprisingly many people got sick of these (often cheesy) motivational posters and started creating parodies on them. One of such people Dr. E.L. Kersten, in 1998, founded a company Despair, Inc., that turned making such demotivational posters into a professional business. Their demotivational posters sold in millions and beat the records of any motivational posters ever sold.
Today we ask you to create any demotivational poster.
Try to make them mimic the classic motivational posters format like the examples above - black background, image in the middle, followed by the title word(s), and demotivational message below.
The image in the middle has to be photoshopped, so you can not just take unaltered photo and add text to it. You are welcome to go beyond the work topics, and create demotivational posters from any areas - politics, relationships, etc. NOTE: as an exception to our rules, in this contest you are allowed to recycle any of your previous entries of FN and use it for the central image in your demotivational poster. Remember that your entry in this contest HAS to include the title word(s) and a de-motivational text message, like in the examples above.
