THEY WHO DARE was started when the founder couldn’t find well-designed inspirational wall art for his work-from-home space in Venice Beach, California. After hours of failed searching, he decided to design and create his own prints.
Now, we aim to provide people with posters born of that same ethos. Our posters feature original designs that pair well with a range of spaces and that motivate and inspire people to achieve their goals and keep a positive mindset.
All prints are digitally printed on archival paper and lightfast archival pigments. Original prints are designed by THEY WHO DARE, a design commune based in Venice Beach, Ca, on the western edge of Los Angeles. THEY WHO DARE takes inspiration from the vibrant, bohemian, free spirited community of Venice Beach and the unique combination of beach, ocean, and sun.
All pieces are original and unique concepts designed by the THEY WHO DARE design team.
When a design is complete, we create a high resolution 300 dpi file that is sent to the print facility for color calibration with the printers. We then make color corrections to ensure the color matches the design vision, and then finalize the files for production. All digital files are at 300dpi to ensure max clarity.
When a poster is available in multiple sizes with different aspect ratios, for example 18x24 and 24x36 sizes, we custom design the poster for each size, instead of simply upscaling or downscaling a design. This ensures that each design is customized for the scale of the print, ensuring that at any size the design maintains maximum impact. This attention detail makes our posters stand out.
Each poster is giclée-printed on archival acid-free paper with archival and lightfast inks. The paper has a smooth matte finish, and a thick and durable weight.

"Giclée is a neologism coined in 1991 by printmaker Jack Duganne for fine art digital prints made on inkjet printers. The name originally applied to fine art prints created on a modified Iris printer in a process invented in the late 1980s."
