New studies show that images composed of certain colors are more motivational than posters featuring slogans and motivational phrases. Copia Art is now offering decorative wall art images of nature and skylines that stretch across two or three canvases.
Online PR News – 23-May-2012 – New York, NY – For many years, motivational posters have hung in offices across the country. These posters typically have an image and a phrase that plays off of the image. For example, an image of a bridge might feature a phrase about how people working together can act as a bridge between problems. But lately, old fashioned motivational posters have become objects of ridicule, with internet users making sarcastic ones known as "de-motivational posters."
Online retailer Copia Art is happy to announce a new line of decorative wall art designed to replace those hackneyed motivational posters. Copia Art’s affordable art images of real places and things in nature seek to inspire in a more organic way. The idea behind this: certain colors and images have been found to be motivational despite the absence of words or slogans.
An image of the Great Wall Of China, for example, draws amazement from viewers, even those who are familiar with the landmark. Most people's first thought upon looking at the structure is amazement that it was built by human hands. This train of thought then leads directly to the power of teamwork. The viewer ultimately draws his or her own conclusion from the image, but is still thinking a positive thought, which stems from a more organic place. The images are given appropriate titles, like a scene of a deserted tropical beach that is called Tranquility.
"Allowing the user to draw his or her own conclusion lets the poster reach more people overall. A poster that says ‘Follow Your Dreams’ is only effective to the small segment of people who actually read the slogan and think about what it says. But decorative wall art can inspire many different thoughts," said Roey Burg, a spokesperson for Copia Art.
"We have a piece that features the Roman Aqueduct," Burg continues. "One person looking at it might think about how brilliant the Romans were, and feel inspired by their ingenuity. Another might remember that they've always wanted to go to Rome and start working harder to make that dream come to fruition. Yet another might just be stressed out and need a minute to look at the image and feel far away from home, relax his mind, and come back to reality."
