The New Motivational Poster: Illustrated Advice From Designers - Atlantic Mobile Unpacking the secrets of happiness and creativity, one poster at a time. What better way to kick off the new year than with words of wisdom from those who have threaded before us? That's precisely the premise of Advice to Sink in Slowly, a wonderful project enlisting design graduates in passing on advice and inspiration to first-year students through an ongoing series of posters—part Live Now, part Everything Is Going To Be OK, part Wisdom, part something completely refreshing, based on the idea that we all have subjective wisdom we wish we'd known earlier, but often don't get a chance to pass it on to those who can benefit from it in a way that makes them pay heed. "Advice is subjective. But, by passing on advice in a creative way, it is possible to create something that lasts, that people will want to live with and which can let the advice sink in slowly and help out later on." "to create ideas is a gift, but to choose wisely is a skill" by Ryan Morgan "Do what you love" by Andy J.

17 Images You Won't Believe Aren't Photoshopped (Part 7) Salvador Dali's Melting Train Tracks These funhouse-mirror railroad tracks are a reminder that Mother Nature pretty much laughs at the things we build. What you're seeing is the aftermath of a recent earthquake in New Zealand. We feel sorry for those two guys in orange who apparently have been tasked with re-straightening the tracks with their bare hands. Hurry up, guys! Hey, Pretty Impressive Mural! This would be an impressive feat even if this church was just a painting on the side of the cliff face. It's the Hermitage of St. So, yeah, good job to whoever hauled all those bricks up there. Spider Goat, Spider Goat ... While we're on the topic of amazing feats of Italians, we present the Alpine ibex, seen here casually scaling the Cingino Dam in Italy and openly defying all laws of physics. The only thing these goats give less of a shit about than gravity are the fences you build to try to keep them in.
