Attention quote and design lovers, here’s a poster series that marries minimalism with inspiration and will look great on your wall. Toronto based designer Ryan McArthur has created this awesome line of prints using quotations from some of the most brilliant minds. He illustrates each of his simple, clean designs by hand then manually traces each line converting it to a vector graphic to scale and manipulate. Next he adds in the speech bubble graphic of the author’s name along with the quote itself, and voila!

McArthur has a way of conveying exactly what each quote represents in the most minimal way. My favorite is the Rumi quote “Life is a balance of holding on and letting go” which features a caterpillar stuck on a branch looking out at the beautiful butterfly he will become. Check out more of McArthur’s designs along with the process behind them on his blog Prints of these posters are available for purchase on Etsy.
