It’s no secret that we’re fascinated by “365 projects” and the dedication they reveal (previous posts here and here and here). Done well, these daily doses of artistry not only help develop a robust portfolio, but also serve as an exercise in on-demand creativity… a must in the field of graphic design, as we know all too well. And Nebraska-based designer/illustrator Ian Simmons tackled his serial project expertly. We are in awe of not only the diversity of his work, but the sheer quality of his typography. Clearly a movie buff at heart, Simmons masterfully depicted a wide variety of film quotes through illustration and typography, for 365 days straight (actually, 366)! Yes, an entire year. Just incredible. This is just a sampling of a few of our favorites, but be sure to check out his Instagram for the complete collection. He even sells select prints (here).

New York-based designer Evan Robertson may be something of a bookworm, but just about anyone can appreciate his literature-inspired series of prints, The Illustrated Quotation Project. Robertson takes lines from some of his favorite authors and turns them into these superb, clever posters (for sale here). We like the variety of Robertson’s high-contrast style, but also the uniformity of the series. Well done, looking forward to seeing more.
