I recently wrote a story about empowering art for little kids, pieces that dole out silent but daily reminders to be kind, curious, and unique. Which got me thinking about, well, myself. That’s right, WHAT ABOUT ME? No, I don’t really need artwork urging me to chase my dreams, but a hilarious song lyric or badass movie quote greeting me every morning is right up my alley.
Typography wall art is having a major moment and while flowery words of encouragement are nice … I’m definitely more receptive to inspirational prose in the form rap lyrics from Drake (“Started from the bottom, now we’re here"), Biggie Smalls (“It was all a dream”), and Jay-Z (“Allow me to reintroduce myself”). Passing by these lines on the daily not only triggers my most favorite songs in my head, but also ignites the swagger I feel on the dance floor and gets me amped up for the day, night, or as I’m about to head out for a run. That’s right, I started from the bottom and now I’m here and I feel f--king fantastic! Same goes for movie quotes — hate your job? The “Frankly my dear, I don’t give a damn” print may be just what you need welcoming you as you get home from a long day at the office.
Below I’ve rounded up 15 of my favorite Iamfy typography pieces, a combination of iconic lyrics and movie quotes all in standout typography that can work either as accent art or as the focal point of a room. Was there ever a better conversation starter than the lyrics to “Rappers Delight”? I think not!
