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.

Sometimes we spend so much time preparing or buying supplies or getting ready that we never really get started. It’s a way of procrastinating. This quote reminds us to just jump right in.

About the designer: Graphic designer Julie Green of Up Up Creative is also a letterer and illustrator. She’s pretty crazy talented. Go buy some of her cards on Minted.

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!
