Often interpreted as “Different”, “Original”, or “Abstract Thinking”, the phrase “Outside the Box” could be taken both literally or figuratively. This may be your reason to step outside of your comfort zone, use the right side of your brain, or color outside the lines! Your challenge is to use your imagination and show us your interpretation of “Outside the Box”.
