I was assigned a project to create two Inspirational “memes” for a real estate company (hey – if they’ll pay me, I’ll do it).
They provided me some images to “inspire” me: some pink pompoms, a carnation flower, a Windows landscape background and two quotes.
Great. I did what they asked and sent them on.
Client: Hey! These are great, but can you use these images instead?
Attached: a low poly image of Leonardo DiCaprio hugging Matthew McConaughey and a low poly photo of the Terminator giving a thumbs up.
I found a higher res version of the DiCaprio/McConaughey photo and used that. However, for the second I have just placed a 210x168 px, 96 dpi Terminator dead center in a 480x480 square.
I am currently awaiting feedback.
