PostPosted: Mon Sep 20, 2010 11:49 pm

I'm thinking of an image showing a lot of clocks.

Depends how literally you want to take each part of the phrase "More Future"

You can either try to quantify "future" then try to show less future next to more future.

You could twist things and show a picture of a pregnant woman called Mrs More indicating a future generation of More's or more More's on the way :) Taking the More family premise another way you could show a coffin as the future for any More will be a hole in the ground.

You could go down the scientific route add an other O to your more and take a picture of a blackboard with lots of equations showing Moore's Law which is used to help to predict the future of computer processor speeds.

It depends if you were just given an open ended title or some constraints.

those ideas sound great but i'm sorry to inform you that "more future" is just translated into english so the "moore" thing is out of the question. playing with words is not an option sadly.

I'm thinking maybe a person looking at a vast display of smart phones, trying to choose one...indicating the onward and constant march of technology bringing more future to our lives.

Or maybe a young person dressed in an old vintage clothing style looking like they are from a past era walking next to or looking at an older person dressed modern - sort of a look at that person's future self - maybe even done with multiple generations.

Or if you can find the word 'future' written on a billboard, sign, or store window anywhere, and photograph that - maybe find a way to get multiples of that word through reflections or mirrors.

Just some crazy ideas.

I tend to be very sarcastic on the best of days so mine is a sarcastic version... Id take a pic of a fast food restaurant of any kind and find 3 or 4 couples in the pic in front of the fast food joint dressed formally as if this was the future's fine dining.... Being a chef by trade its always been a pet peave of mine to see more and more food items coming in a pre-fab form and seeing the combined talent in the cooking industry going down the tubes due to the fast food mentality.

while it's a very original and creative idea, it won't do me any good here.. this is for a national bank and it's promovations for their "new ways of communication in the future"

Hi Anel, now your post has a definition of a bank perhaps you will get some good ideas here.

Banks make money and are not really interested in people, only their money. Banks here tend to give the impression of people friendly. I saw a shot a new born baby in the hands of a man in today's local magazine, the hands were cut off at the wrists and the background was completely black, a nice shot.

I thought if you used a people theme from birth to enjoying life in senior years would promote communications with people and we care regardless of age. Not sure if you want only one photo but the above idea requires 3. e.g., a baby, a good looking couple like you and your girlfriend and a senior couple enjoying life holding hands.

Guess it's all about perception and national cultures.

Cheers
