So, I’ve been asked to redesign a cartoon. It’s a simple, two-panel thing - in the first, a half-dozen people are fighting to reach an apple, in the second, they’re forming a human pyramid with the girl at the top happily brandishing the apple prize. The moral: if you work together, everyone wins.
Current version is ugly as hell, and quite twee. It’s fallen to me to replace it, with what I’m not quite sure yet. Something with the same general message, anyhow.
Which brings me to my question: can anyone share with me their favourite metaphors for teamwork? It doesn’t have to be something that helps me directly, here - I’m looking for anything to spark some ideas, so anecdotes, jokes, stories, or just straight metaphors are all more than welcome. If it’s clever, that’s a bonus!
I’d really appreciate if some of you could help get my neurons firing.
Apologies if this is the wrong forum, I wasn’t quite sure where to put it.
