Clichés: Globe Pictures

Created: Wednesday, April 29, 2015, posted by Geetesh Bajaj at 4:00 am



Globes again on your slides? And why not? A globe represents so much – just adding a picture of a globe can scream “international”! And maybe that’s the problem? Maybe that’s the cliché? Maybe it would be better to use something else as a visual rather than a globe? Now these questions have “maybe” written all over them, and you really cannot expect to get simple “yes” and “no” answers, as in “yes, you can still use a globe picture”, or “no, you cannot”. Even then, we can still discuss and find solutions for ourselves – not through direct answers, but through introspection.

Learn why globe pictures can look clichéd, and what you can do to get better alternatives.
