We’re all born winners, some of us just don’t know how to tap into that power of winning yet. We have our wins and our fails and the attitude to fit both situations. Winning give us that boost to continue fighting while struggling with life’s challenges. The key to a winning attitude is determination. As soon as you realize this is absolutely necessary, then you have to think about getting yourself tuned up for competition. Humans are competitive animals and driven by a constant need of power. Of course there should always be some kind of a balance to keep, in order to succeed without losing your morals. Make plans of what you are going to make out of your life then work as hard as you can to achieve that goal. Ronald Reagan said: “We never lose – somehow we win out.”
What i most liked about this image made by Adam121 is that it has a positive message, but shows also that the road to success is a difficult one (the hands are dirty from the struggle). One thing i try to remember each day is that if you don’t win, you are already a winner because you gave your best and the experience made your life richer with knowledge.

What i so great about this image:

1. It shows the hands of the people dirty, not hiding the fact that to win means you have to try hard, make sacrifices and struggle with yourself to keep going.
2. It has a positive message that helps you focus on determination.
3. It has plenty of copy space. You can write your own message/slogan on the sky.
4. Great isolation, the hands with the trophy can be cut out from the background and used separately or put on a different background.
5. The colors are bright and warm.
6. It’s simple yet it hides a very complex message and process.

How could we use it:

  • Inspirational posters to put in offices in a multinational company, but also in your own house as a constant reminder to never giving up.
  •  Motivational campaigns.
  • As a main image in an advertising campaign for the services of a bank/stock market investments. Using their services you will be the winner.
  • As a layout/background for a company that offers training on personal development.
  • As part of an advert for all kinds of products from cars to pharmaceuticals, etc. Choose this brand/product and you win.
  • As a billboard for any sports competitions.
  • As an advert for the national lottery.
  • As part of an advertising for casinos.
  • For a recruitment company/website.
  • As book covers and also interior of magazines, etc. I can already picture it as a cover for a very familiar business magazine.

Time is relative, according to Albert Einstein. To the rest of world time is either called the enemy either the savior. We always say that time will heal all wounds or we panic when we realize that time is ticking just like a clock and the more we move in the future the more we feel we don’t have enough time to do whatever we want. The truth is time just is, it never moves faster or slower. These are just the perceptions that we have about it. This image by stokkete is so wonderful that i fell in love with it and its concept. I like it so much that i might actually frame it and hang it on my wall as a reminder that we all have time, it’s just the way that we use it that will make a difference in our lives.

What’s so great about this picture?

1. It has a great message that is always actual. Since forever people have complained about either the lack of time or the amount of free time that leads to boredom.

2. It has fantastic geometry that raises this image as a beautiful piece of art.

3. It has a vintage look due to the colors. Vintage is the new modern in our age, also an indication how time actually moves from past to present and future.

4. The amount of copy space gives the buyer the opportunity to write a lot of messages on it.

How could we use it?

  •  As the main image for an insurance company, great for promoting a life insurance.
  •  Motivational posters for improving life’s quality by becoming more organized and establishing one’s priority. We all know that saying;”Don’t Put Off Until Tomorrow What You Can Do Today!”.
  •  An investment campaign either for stock market or real estate.
  •  An advert for a miracle cosmetics that stops the aging progress.
  •  A campaign for a recruitment company. Time is now, apply and we’ll help find you a job faster so you save the time you spend applying your CV everywhere.
  •  Wallpapers for your desktops. (By the way, this is my current wallpaper)
  •  A framed print to put on the walls either in your home, office, etc. It really is such an artistic image.
  •  The cover for a book or inside print in either books, magazines or newspapers.
  •  Outdoors billboards for different campaigns.

Image of the week: Freedom in a world of constrains

Tied up woman screaming.

Image available for sale at: http://www.yayimages.com/stock-image/tied-up-woman-screaming-/3611051

When i first saw this image uploaded by BDS my mind stopped for a few minutes and i kept starring at it like a kid at something new and lovely. It intrigued me so much because it has so much power and it is so versatile and it speaks so much about freedom and how tied down are all of us by the society. I met once a very wise old man who told me that freedom is not how we perceive it and freedom is not achieved through wars and violence, but through our own minds. In society we need to have rules that we must obey in order for it to function, but what we can do for ourselves is to set ourselves free from the inside out, not the other way around. We can become free by changing the way we see things, the way we think and act towards the world and the others around us. That reminds of a great quote by Mahatma Gandhi that fits just right: “You must be the change you wish to see in the world.”

What’s so great about this picture?

1. It has a powerful full of emotion message – a woman tied up and screaming.

2. It has endless opportunities of usage.

3. It has a lot of copy space on the black background where you can write you own words, message. Actually looking it more carefully you could even write something on the model’s tongue, like a cry for help, etc.

4. The colors are bright and vivid, even though the black background can be a little “threatening”

5. It has great emotional impact reaching subjects as freedom of humans in society, freedom of speech, abuse towards women, emotional and financial constrains, etc.

How could we use it?

  •  Outdoor and indoor adverts and billboards with a message about freedom of speech, freedom of women in the Muslim community, stop the domestic violence.
  • A commercial for a new radio station where you don’t hear any more bad songs.
  • A politician’s campaign image, through which he wants to liberate people of all previous financial and political constrains.
  •  A commercial for a new medicine for head-aches or even flu or allergies, asthma, etc.
  • A powerful campaign to raise awareness about the human traffic situation.
  • A nonconformist job add, for a firm that promotes a different type of working environment, where people are treated nicely and have the freedom to speak without being judged and fired.
  • An add for a psychotherapist new office with a possible message like: Rid yourself of constrains and start living a new life!
  • Wallpapers for our desktops, banners and logos for applications.
  • In magazines and newspapers on a huge number of subjects regarding freedom in every way.
  • Inspirational posters.
  • Printed on shirts, caps, mugs, promotional material, book covers, agendas, etc
