Rob’s presentation had this picture concept and so did Sam’s – and so do countless other slides. What’s this picture concept that populates so many slides? Why is it so popular? And more importantly – why is it so over-used? First of all, let’s admit that the reason why a picture concept gets clichéd is because it is good to start with – but then it’s too good for its own existence. Rampant overuse means that the emotions that this picture concept evoked do not work anymore – and that’s exactly what happened with the teamwork picture that showed many, many hands placed together. And now, just because some people over-used the concept, you have to find, create, and use newer visual concepts to cater to that same emotion!
