Need a daily reminder that your glass is half-full, but minus the overenthusiastic motivational cubicle prose? DTLA-based Arts District Printing Co.'s collection of design-driven wall art offers plenty of eye-pleasing options sans the cheesy words of wisdom. Founded by LA photographer Jonathan Ventura and the interior design pros behind inspiring Downtown shop Hammer & Spear, the typography-happy brand creates simple and stylish posters featuring swoon-worthy scenery from Cali and beyond.
In addition to obsessing over the local design company's dreamy prints of Downtown, Echo Park, and other LA nabes, we're fans of positive vibe-giving posters like the one above, titled "Breathe." When life gets cray-cray, we all need a little reminder to do that inhale-exhale thing to keep from, y'know, not being alive. This calming poster is available in an array of sizes to suit any corner of your desk.
