Quote: “In the end, we only regret the chances we didn’t take.” -Anonymous
This is the final concept of my visual quote project. The information provided with the design shows that although we are given many chances in our lives. Some chances shouldn’t be taken lightly. The overall outcome of regretting can vary from something that can be forgotten and something that will cling onto you for the rest of your life.
Above is a final revision of my teardrop concept for my visual quote. It shows tear droplets with a dull purple background. Which creates a gloomy and depressing mood. When thinking of tears people usually think of tears of joy and tears of experiencing pain. In this case the concept was made to show pain and regret. There are times when people tend to regret certain opportunities and chances in their lives that they should’ve taken, but didn’t.
This is a final revision of my ring concept. A ring is displayed with cracks, but still shines. Along with the quote, “In the end, we all regret the chances we didn’t take.” Rings remind us of beauty and occasionally it reminds us of engagements and proposals. But this concept was made to explain that not all rings make people happy. A lot of people tend to regret not taking a chance to be with a certain person. Instead of taking it they would push it aside. After a certain amount of time the individual will slowly start to regret what they have done.The chances and precautions that they didn’t take.
The image above isn’t a raindrop, yet a teardrop. It resembles tears of joy or pain and suffering. In this case it resembles pain. This design is made primarily to show the weight of regret and how it can really bring people down. On the top of the design it writes chance. It was complete like that to show how everyone has few chances that come up in their lives only once. Chances come and go. If not taken lightly they slip away and bring nothing but regret.
Another design I made for the quote which strongly identifies regret. This is a design of a shattered and cracked ring with the word chance engraved on the jewel. Its a primary example of regret whereas to how people were given a chance in a relationship. Yet failed to acknowledge that chance that was given to them and ending up losing it.
My third and final design is to exaggerate the amount of weight regret holds. This design mainly emphasizes the word regret as a heavy weight. Below this weight is the word chance being crushed by it. This shows how important chances can be sometimes in our lives. Mistakenly choosing the wrong option can lead to regret.
