CREATING A MOTIVATIONAL POSTER IN MS WORD
MICROSOFT WORD DRAWING PROJECT No. 50
TITLE: CREATING A MOTIVATIONAL POSTER IN MS WORD
TYPE: GRAPHIC DESIGN
My former secondary school English teacher once said, “Everybody has problems. But I never bring my personal problems to work. I always leave my personal problems at the gate before I enter the school compound so that I can concentrate on my work. After school I will pick them up at the gate and bring them home with me.” I feel that there is some wisdom in what he said and I started practising this virtue after I became a teacher. I believe that students are my clients and therefore I shouldn’t let my personal problems affect my responsibilities. So, starting off the day with a happy feeling or cheerful mood is good because it helps us perform our duties better.
Here is a motivational poster with the cute egg cartoon character to attract attention and to communicate the message to the viewers. In this art project, it is the morale boosting message that the poster is trying to convey. Graphic Design is one of the disciplines in Visual Communication. When you use pictures and text to communicate ideas and messages to the audience, it is known as visual communication.
I used complimentary colours to create contrast between the text and the background. The bright green coloured background complements the red coloured text. In other words, combining the red coloured text with the green background makes the look text more intense and attractive and such effect can draw viewers’ attention to the message.
