Jony Ive, the Apple Inc. executive designer responsible for just about every Apple product you can name — and even that controversial cross lightsaber in the new Star Wars movie — was recently profiled by the New Yorker and he revealed a few interesting facets to how he works. Perhaps most interesting is the artwork he keeps in his office.

“Overlapping framed images leaned against the wall: a Banksy print of the Queen with the face of a chimpanzee, and a poster, well known in design circles, that begins, ‘Believe in your fucking self. Stay up all fucking night,’ and ends, many admonitions later, ‘Think about all the fucking possibilities.’ “

The poster was designed by Brian Buirge and Jason Bacher from the studio Good Fucking Design Advice. It’s dead simple, but motivation in that form will cost you about $100.
This is Banksy’s “Queen Chimp” piece Ive also keeps in his office.
So, what kind of art would you keep in your office to keep you inspired? Whatever makes you fucking successful, that’s what.
