Quotes are very inspirational. They make us think and often change the way we view life. They constantly challenge our perspectives and force us to rethink what we believe. The secret to making a quote more memorable is good design. Both unify together and provide inspiration in a variety of different ways.

I know many people are tired of the whole “put random words on top of an image” trend, so this form of art may not be your cup of tea. I personally still really enjoy well designed posters and appreciate the artistic execution. Below we’we listed a short and sweet collection of twenty beautiful typographic, lettered, and calligraphic quotes. Enjoy!
