I have been feeling the need lately for some extra encouraging words, so I teamed up with a few recent grads and students to help illustrate some inspiring quotes. These can be printed out and put on your inspiration board, pinned to Pinterest, or just put the file on your desktop whenever you feel you need some inspiration. Consider these free, virtual hugs from the team here at Design Milk.

This design focuses on laughter, something that’s super important to me. I take things way too seriously sometimes, so it’s nice to have a good belly laugh, or even a series of giggles during the day to keep me from getting wound too tightly.

About the designer: Bethany Baker is a Graphic Design student/blogger from London, England with a passion for all things design related. You can find her at merrymakedo.co.uk.

We’ll do a few of these on the site, but then we’ll probably keep this series going on Instagram. Let us know in the comments if you’d like to continue seeing these here on the blog. Want to do one? Get in touch!
