Clichés: Teamwork Pictures

Created: Thursday, June 4, 2015, posted by Geetesh Bajaj at 4:00 am



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!

Learn why teamwork pictures such as hands placed together are so clichéd, and what you can do about it.
