These ARE the Droids You Are Looking For: Funny Demotivational Posters for your Office

Last week, we posted a page of inspirational motivational posters for the office. Today, I’ve hunted the internet for a range of funny, snarky demotivational posters - you may not want these on the wall, but you’ll definitely get a giggle about some of these funny (and often true) ideas.

Heavy Metal Motivationals

From If Heavy Metal Lyrics Were Motivational Posters, on the Metalsucks blog.

Personally, I find Heavy Metal pretty motivating and inspiring. The music is often about claiming back power and fighting for what you believe in. But sometimes the lyrics can be downright nonsensical.

The lyrics in this poster are from Holy Diver, by Dio. The original song is awesome.

Sherlock Holmes Quote Poster

And lastly, my love affair with Sir Arthur Conan Doyle means that I have to add a Sherlock quote in here. Quote from one of my favorite stories, The Red-Headed League. Do you work with a bunch of lunatics? This could be a great office motto. From the Jane & Company Design studio.

While these posters are a bit of fun, it can be nice to use famous and inspiring quotes to decorate the office. What quotes inspire you?
