For my first assignment I was tasked with creating a sports poster for a professional sports team. Sticking with the theme of AIs in DS106 I decided to use an AI to generate this poster. I asked the AI to produce a sports poster of the Yankees using a modern theme with nature elements. I felt a modern theme would really grab audience’s attention given the futuristic looks of the poster. I threw in the nature theme as a twist. If you look at sports poster in today’s society there is a lack of a nature elements. I’m not saying nature themed sports posters don’t exist, but I felt including this would draw more attention due to the uncommon presence of it.
Why the Yankees?
I chose the New York Yankees for my example for a couple reasons. First reason is this is my favorite sports team of all time. I grew up watching some of the greatest players to ever play for the Yankees. For example, Derek Jeter, Alex Rodriguez, Jorge Posada, and countless more. Another reason I chose the Yankees was how iconic they are. All over the world people have heard of the New York Yankees. This poster came out great. It gives a futuristic vibe with hints of nature elements, something different from a boring generic poster that will turn heads and grab the audience’s attention.
