It's your choice: Research

As i have changed the deliverables of a prievious project 'proverbially yours message and interpretaion' i thin it is nessasery for me to look a little more into the proverb i was given 'better late than never' i chose to keep the prover as i felt i didn't take full advantage design wise last time, and i believe i can do something more effective this time around.


'Better late than never'
My previous design did address the proverb but not appropriately, i wish to create something visually effective and something that makes sense for the proverb to be used within the design.


My idea is to create a set of belated cards, gift wrap and gift tags. I feel these products will will address the idea of something being better late than never and will solve it's own problem.


Here is some research i have gathered:


Idioms 'better late than never'
-Something that you say which means it is better for someone or something to be late than never to arrive or to happen
-It is good this happened now although it should have happened sooner


Other appropriate proverb relating to original:
-Don't forget that thing you were supposed to remember 
-Elephants never forget


Belated birthday wishes:


Happy Belated Birthday!
How do you expect me to remember your birthday, when you never look any older?
I hope your birthday was all that you hoped for.
Wishing you a belated birthday.
Happy Belated Early Birthday!
Sorry I forgot the most important day of the year... your Birthday!
2, 4, 6, 8, sorry that this birthday cheer is late!
This wish is late so that you can celebrate your birthday longer.
I'm so lucky to have such a great friend like you... who'd forgive me if I forgot his(/her) birthday. Happy Belated Birthday!
Best wishes for your birthday afterwards.


Gift set research:
I have collected a lot of imagery to help me decided what approach i wish to take on my own designs.
