hello lovelies! today i’m excited to share this month’s recap of the roost tribe, which gives you a sneak peek of what august brought to the roost tribe. the good news is, it’s not too late to get all of august’s content! i’ll be sending out an august recap on tuesday, september 3rd to the roost tribe with all of the content in it from august so no one will have missed anything, regardless of when you might have joined during this month.

that means, that if you join before tuesday, september 3rd you’ll still get all of this yummy content from august + september’s content as well- that’s two months for the price of one!

leafy tea packaging design

i adore this sweet packaging concept that belinda shih designed. it’s only for a hypothetical tea company, but i hope it becomes a reality, because i can taste it already! belinda says that the design is focused on the concept of afternoon tea – a time to unwind, re-energize, and relax after a long day of work. the package is therefore minimalist, calm in color and simple in shape, with a hint of the soothing elegance of steam swirls and tea drops. i think it’s brilliantly beautiful.

jill de haan's floral alphabet

full of whimsical flowers and intricate details, jill de haan’s floral alphabet is super dreamy. with ferns peeking out from around every corner, the letters seem to live in a botanical paradise! if you heart is-a-fluttering, you’ll be sure to love the rest of jill’s portfolio as well.

allison colpoys

after recently reading this interview over on the design files, i immediately fell in love with allison colpoys, a fabulous book designer for penguin. her fresh and artful style makes me long to flip through the pages of any one of these books. in her interview, she discusses her daily routine, the process of designing a book for penguin, some of her inspirations and much, much more. i especially love the handrawn and woodsy feel to alaska, what’s your favorite?

when i stumbled across oana befort’s work and blog, my heart strings felt a big ‘ol tug. sometimes you can just tell when someone has a similar spirit, it’s like they see beauty in the same way that you do. i always love it when artists give a sneak peek into their sketchbooks, and i enjoyed oana’s so much that i thought you might as well!

this week, i have been oohing and ahhing over this sunny san francisco based illustrator, brent couchman. though talented across the board, i’m especially loving his pieces that have a vintage-home-grown kind of feel. i just want to grab my sketchbook and start drawing letters, don’t you?
