Clicking through the wonderfully creative designs, I was prepared to lament my practical, linear life, seemingly unable to produce such wonders. Then, as if on cue: the solution.

Yeah, I was expecting to be affected like I just saw "motivational" posters for artists. I was struck differently; these are beautiful.

Thanks so much for kind comments:)

Advice can be so subjective, it is the attempt at the exchange which matters I think, so long as the advice e design are sincere and personal.

Francesca - I really want to start doing advice workshops with prisons, schools, old people, etc - passing on personal advice in a creative way...

I love all of these, but this one really hits home. It's sound advice all around.

Perhaps it's just because I have vivid memories of seagulls stealing sandwiches off my elementary school lunch tables.
