This project to produce a Visual Quote was interesting. A quote that stood out to me years ago was “Think Outside the Box”. Initially, I was lost on the saying, because I don’t really understand what it means to think “inside” the box. I guess as graphic artists, that’s ultimately how the mind works, as creativity, eliminates the figurative box. Visual Quote 1 represents flattening the assumed box or limitations of the mind.

Visual Quote 2 focuses on the white space outside the box. To me that represents the creative freedoms and limitless options to be had outside the confines of a box.

Visual Quote 3 is just a stab at being creative. Using different typefaces to emphasize the quote, with the word “Think” being elevated to highlight the hiearchy, and the word “box” being the last but still open for possibilities.
