Do you love reading inspirational quotes?
I particularly read inspirational quotes on Mondays to jumpstart my week. They serve as my guiding force to reach my weekly goals and tasks.
London-based graphic designer Kyle Robertson was tasked by a creative agency to turn inspirational quotes by famous people from different industries like Bill Gates, Mark Twain, Albert Einstein, and Sir Richard Branson to typographic prints.
Given the freedom to transform the beautiful words into his very own typography art, Robertson utilised only a few families of typefaces and printed them in black and white for a “clean, bold and engaging” appeal.
In case you’re wondering, he used Tungsten, Knockout, Ideal Sans, Archer, Calendas Plus, and Brandon Grotesque as typefaces.
Robertson’s finished artworks were used to dress the walls of the agency’s office in order to inspire and motivate their staff as well as clients.
“Designing a suite of typographic prints to hang on the walls felt like a good way to cheer up the hardworking staff and the visiting clients,” he said.
Simple but stunning.

She was Bullied Because of Her Birthmark But She Refused to Remove it. INSPIRING!
Woman is bullied because of her birthmark but refuses to remove it.
Whenever we struggle through life, comparing ourselves to other people and feeling less beautiful or important, these are the words to ponder on,
'Uniqueness is a scientific fact of life. When God made you, He broke the mold. There never has been, and never will be, anybody exactly like you. '- Purpose Driven
We are created unique and beautiful, thus, we should be confident in our own skin. Living up to this is the Alberta, Canada based Cassandra Naud. The 22-year-old professional dancer was born with a large birthmark under her left eye. Bullied in her youth, she would fought back tears and felt ugly. She even struggled to get rid of it and beg for an operation. This has changed though when she learned to appreciate her unique appearance and embraced it instead.
Naud was born with hypertrichosis, a rare condition which causes excessive hair growth in certain parts of the body.

Boy With a Rare Disease Found a Best Friend in an A****d Tail-less Dog With Only Three Legs.
Owen and Haatchi may seem like your typical boy and dog, but their friendship? It seems sent from above.
Life can sometimes be unfair, throwing heartbreaking things at us like a physical disability, a family heartbreak, and a career meltdown. It tends to keep us in the dark and shy us away from society, as we are afraid to be rejected. But more often than not, a spark of hope almost always comes our way, giving light to our problems. This is what exactly happened to best friends, Owen and Haatchi.
Owen is a 9 year old boy from England, who was diagnosed with a rare neuromuscular disorder called Schwartz-Jampel syndrome. His disorder causes him to look like a little bodybuilder who constantly experiences muscle contractions and severe muscle pains. He has been bound to a wheelchair, resulting in feelings of insecurity and loneliness.
Haatchi is a poor dog who was tied to the train tracks and left to die. He was rescued by the railway personnel but they had to amputate his tail and one leg due to severe injury. He was also scheduled to be euthanized, but he survived well after the surgery.
When Owen's stepmom saw the picture of Haatchi on Facebook she felt like this could be the answer to Owen's loneliness, so they adopted him, and Owen's condition indeed improved!...
