The Poster Project of Baron Fig

by . May 31st, 2014

12 artists. 12 inspirational quotes. 12 wickedly beautiful posters.

Baron Fig, a business known for their beautiful notebooks and sketchbooks, recently launched The Poster Project. The project is a series of inspiring posters by designers, or “thinkers” according to Baron Fig, from around the world. Each artist was given an inspirational quote by famous people such as, “less talking, more doing” and Benjamin Franklin’s “One today is worth two tomorrows.” They were then tasked to design a poster using the line with a simple color palette.


One by one, the 12 designs were revealed over the course of May 2014 and 50 limited edition silk-screened posters each artwork will be sold on June 2-30, 2014.

While each poster used unique design styles, the series was unified by its delicious color palette and brought focus on each inspiring line featured.
