In stock

It’s good to have a motto. Pause for thought, inspiration – a little positivity works wonders.

This motto is adapted from a well known work by Charles Rennie Mackintosh. It was seen around Glasgow following the sad loss of his masterpiece, The Glasgow School of Art. We like it because it reminds us to never give up Рthere is hope. In times of trouble or worry Рit can help to remember this. A tiny green bud emerges at left to symbolise the message.

Mackintosh designed a variety of lettering throughout his career.
This example is strongly influenced by work from the Vienna Secession group, including Koloman Moser. The spaces between the letterforms and the visual rhythm of the composition have all been carefully considered. It’s a decisive and very successful departure from the rules of conventional typography. The overall effect is at once powerful, thought provoking and reassuring – a little positivity works wonders.
