By Paddi MacDonnell Posted Jan. 23, 2015 Reading time: Less than a minute

All designers need a little inspiration from time to time. So it’s lucky for us that there are thousands of designers, educators, philosophers, writers, and business people willing to hand out advice for free. What is more, the Web is packed with designers and illustrators who’ve put pen to paper (or finger to trackpad) to render these thoughts as posters, t-shirts, and murals.

From James Victore’s “There are no shortcuts”, to Bill and Ted’s “Be excellent to each other”, there is a wealth of good advice ready to help you out.

Today I’ve put together 101 inspirational quotes for designers, covering everything from dealing with clients to getting your priorities straight. There are even a few life lessons thrown in that apply to almost everyone. Even if the quote in question doesn’t ring true for you, the variety of different lettering and typography styles on display is an inspiration in itself. Enjoy!
