25th November 'Spend more Save less',

Today we had a little workshop called spend more save less. The idea was to create a poster that solves the problem of the credit crunch , it was important to get across the idea of families and business that to save the economy people need to spend more money in other words spend  a little to regain the balance of the economy. Again we were working in groups it was myself, Mike, Ellie and Wen, Some good ideas were knocked around at the start and we eventually came up with the idea of relating the title with growing.
We started off with the image of a money tree that Ellie drew and with real £5 and £10 notes photoshopped on the branches in the background. In for foreground was an illustration of a man digging the ground. We were trying to sell the idea of  putting back the money you have in to the economy, using the imagery of the money tree as a metaphor, because everyone knows that money doesn't grow on trees, or does it?.
