Categories Articles

239 days ago, Gui Menga – a designer and calligrapher from São Paulo – started the Daily Advice for a Creative Life tumblr blog, where he’s using hand lettering to illustrate quotes, tips and pieces of advice from various sources around the web. Below you’ll find a selection of my favorite 100 out of his ever-growing collection that counts 239 entries today. One thing that fascinates me is that there are not that many pieces of conflicting advice as you would imagine, so I suspect Gui only picks the ones that resonate with him. Let me know what you think.
