We are lucky to work in an industry with so much inspiration all around us. But sometimes we can hit a creative block, and need some motivating graphic design quotes from somewhere to get the design process back on track.
Design is often seen as a solution to a problem. It should be simple, it should work, it should be clear, and it should look good. But getting to that solution isn’t always easy!
Here’s a collection of 10 inspiration quotes relating to design and creativity taken from leaders in their fields.
“Have no fear of perfection – you’ll never reach it.”
“Design is not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works.”
“Styles come and go. Good design is a language, not a style.”
“Design is so simple, that’s why it is so complicated.”
“It’s through mistakes that you actually can grow. You have to get bad in order to get good.”
“There are three responses to a piece of design – yes, no, and WOW! Wow is the one to aim for.”
“Graphic design will save the world right after rock and roll does.”
“People ignore design that ignores people.”
“I strive for two things in design: simplicity and clarity. Great design is born of those two things.”

OK so this final one from our list of graphic design quotes is from a fictional character, but great quote nonetheless!
“Make it simple, but significant.”
Don Draper (fictional character on the TV showMad Men)
