I selected Contradiction Creation for my second assignment this week. The instructions were to 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.
It took me a little awhile to decide how I wanted to approach this. At first, I wanted to take a crying picture of my four month old and label it “Such a happy baby!” I think that would have been hilarious. However, I wanted to tie this assignment to our theme. I found the smoking laptop photo, and used my Samsung phone editor to label it like a poster.
