I recently found a guy named Julian Bialowas who’s a photographer and graphic design student from Canada. Julian has a pretty cool project going where he publishes one photo a day with a nice quote on it for a whole year. Below you’ll find a couple taken from Julian’s webpage, where you can find all of his photos.

    I love quotes. I send a quote of the day out to my friends almost everyday, and I love finding unique quotes in the most unexpected places/times. In this same sense, thank you for surprising me everyday with new perspectives.

    The fourth from the bottom is from a Tolkien poem

    all that is gold does not glitter
    -not all those who wander are lost
    the old that is strong does not wither
    deep roots are not reached by the frost

    from the ashes of fire shall be woken
    a light from the shadows shall spring
    renewed shall be blade that was broken
    the crownless again shall be king

    (ha so proud of myself for memorizing thatXD)

    • travellati

      beautiful poem, thanks for adding this

      love the quotes too
      seriously, tomorrow never arrives!

  • The ‘Quit your job’ one is excellent. Thats the definition of living the dream.

    “you can do anything, but not everything” should be written on the first page of every career advice book in every school.

  • Jon

    That is the worst design I have seen in my life. You managed to butcher both the photographs and the quotes. Congratulations.

    • Beck

      “There’s always one.”

  • Poet

    the quotes are very boring and uncreative

  • Eden Mercedes

    Very fitting to express the way my recently deceased mother thought me to live. Thank you

  • the QUIT YOUR JOB quote was written by Spencer Antle, the Creative Director of ISLAND COMPANY.  They have many tee shirts of this, their logo…..

    It’s rude to take artists work without permission or giving credit where it is due.
    Here is the true source for the image which reads “you don’t know how strong you are until being strong is the only choice”
    also that quote is originally from Bob Marley.
    PLEASE credit artists. Support Artists/Designers.
