Carpe Diem - Live In The Moment Stencil


Design Story:

Carpe Diem is a Latin aphorism usually translated to "seize the day" or more recently as "live in the moment". The phrase was historically used to urge someone to make the most of the present time and give little thought to the future, though it has gradually shifted toward an expression of mindfulness and appreciating the current moment. Artwork around this phrase really took off in France and spread to other parts of Europe during the Industrial Revolution as it proved capable of capturing the mood and culture of modernity and productivity.
