Each week we invite a designer to illustrate his or her favorite quotes by famous creatives. This week Stockholm design student Erik Kirtley took a break from his studies to send us these pick-me-ups:

  • “We can talk about making a difference, we can make a difference, or we can do both.”—Debbie Millman
  • “Forget inspiration. Habit is more dependable. Habit will sustain whether you’re inspired or not.”—Octavia E. Butler
  • “Take it from a Modernist. Take it from a poet. Use all the fonts. Use all the tools.”—Sam Potts
  • “Typography needs to be audible. Typography needs to be felt. Typography needs to be experiences.” —Helmut Schmid
  • “Don’t try to create and analyze at the same time, they’re different processes.”—Corita Kent
