week six

be yourself

Find an image and design a Motivational Poster for that situation. It should include advice or a favorite quote. Feel free to get creative or make it sarcastic. 

This design assignment was a lot of fun to make. First, I found a quote I liked. I settled on one of the most well-known: “Be yourself, everyone else is already taken”. The assignment instructions recommended using sarcasm so I thought I’d take that approach. I thought it would be fun to reinterpret it as it’s ok to be be by yourself, everyone else is already in a relationship. Then, I found this perfect picture from That 70’s Show where Fez was third wheeling. I chose the font for the quote because the colors matched the image’s and it looked fun and seemed ironic. To put the two together I used Canva again as I did with the rest of my posts. Then I uploaded the completed poster to Flickr. Overall, it was pretty simple to put together.

Be yourself; everyone else is already taken
