How-To: Turn Resolutions into Art

Looking for a few good words to get you on the right track for 2013? You’re certainly not alone. Typographical art is all the rage, and for good reason. Beautifully designed and inspiring in sentiment, these posters are a great way to add new art — and motivation — in this new year. We’ve found a variety of great posters that, with proper matting and framing, would create the perfect new artwork on your gallery wall.

We’re not the only fan of Francesca Ramos‘s reinterpretation of Gandhi’s 10 fundamental principals — Oprah has also featured the poster on her blog, The Life List. This design is available for free download courtesy of the artist. Hang it above your desk or on your foyer wall to remind yourself to be your best self in 2013.

 

Artist Emily McDowell designed this intentions poster for 2013 from her original illustration. She notes that “Intentions are stronger than resolutions. They say to your subconscious, ‘This is how things are gonna go around here from now on.’” The Declaration of Intentions for the New Year poster is large, at 13 by 19 inches,  and Emily sees it as a collaboration between the artist and the recipient: write in your personal details  before framing your poster.

Another personalized resolution poster that caught our eye is this Custom Resolution Poster from Etsy seller Porcini Button. The poster can be customised to show your own goals, resolutions and ambitions with up to 15 lines of text between 2-5 words long, along with your custom color scheme. 


We also love the look of this 7 Habits of Highly Effective People Typographical Poster. It seems like the perfect addition to your cubicle wall or office space in 2013! Follow this link to learn how you can get a file of this poster free from the artist, Jake Huhn.

 

Of course, you can also make your own custom resolution posters for 2013 if you have skills in InDesign. Or perhaps, learning that program is a great goal for the new year — and in the process, you can create a lovely piece of art for 2013.
