Inspirational Posters Made for Minimalists


There’s nothing we need more at the start of a new week that officially marks the beginning of the countdown to the charmingly unambitious dog days of summer than a few inspiring, well-designed words to remind us to keep calm and carry on.

From John Baldessari’s tips for artists to graphic declarations about life and love to our favorite poster from Mike Mills’ modern self-help series to inspirational daily reminders that we recommend hanging above desks, on fridges and in bedrooms, click through to check out our roundup of well-designed typographic sunshine. Submit your favorite warm and fuzzy words of wisdom in the comments below!
