If you know how to make basic memes, then its time you switch it up and get more attention. No doubt, memes have taken over social media today and even the corporate sector is jumping on the bandwagon.
Some brands are using memes to market their products. This can work out well or turn into a flop depending on the memes created.
When creating a meme, you can either use memes that are already popular or you could make one from scratch.
Here are tips that could help you improve your meme creation skills.
You Can’t Go Wrong with Screen Capture Memes
The easiest memes to create have to be the screen capture memes. However, to get the meme to be more popular the image has to be from a well-known movie or TV show. The more people can relate to the meme the more shares it gets and the more popular it becomes.
The Condescending Wonka from the 1971 movie Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is an example of a screen capture meme.
A more recent example of a screen capture meme is the “We don’t do that here” meme from the “Black Panther” movie.
Spice Things up with Comparison Memes
This involves incorporating two images together with a common aspect. You will need a keen eye for this one. Once you have the two images you can use the Adobe’s Spark meme generator to create your meme.
You can choose to add texts to the made meme or leave it at that as sometimes the images say it all.
Use Bursty Backgrounds
Bursty background memes are images gotten from other places and put on a different background an example is the Philosoraptor meme. A hilarious background can be used instead of the plain ones.
To complete this meme, you must add some witty or relatable texts, a joke without a punch line ceases to be a joke.
