Last month I was lucky enough to go on Patricia Pinto and Jacob Kyle’s annual Costa Rica yoga retreat. After attending their retreat last year, I decided I needed to make it an annual thing in my life as well. To say their retreats are life-changing would not be an exaggeration.
This year the retreat was held at Boca Sombrero, which is on the Osa Peninsula- a very remote (and slightly hard to get to) part of the country. The wild, untouched quality of the landscape in these parts is truly special.
The beautiful retreat space was between the jungle and the ocean- a wonderful combination. We did two yoga classes a day (morning and evening), daily guided meditation, and surf, depending on the waves. In-between it all, we were served amazing food at big communal tables.
The retreat fell on the Spring Equinox, New Moon, an eclipse… oh, and did I mention a volcano erupted? We celebrated these events around a fire, to set intentions for the new season, and let go of what no longer served us. It was a special night.
Where we stayed: Boca Sombrero.

Today I bring you the work of Melissa Ginsiorsky, (previously written about here), a multi-talented artist who is a writer, artist, and musician. Her speciality in design lies in stationery, branding, lettering, calligraphy, and illustration. I was blown away by a wedding suite she designed recently, and had to share it here. Enjoy!

Lauren Hom is a designer, illustrator, and letterer, best known for her blog turned book Daily Dishonesty, (featured previously on Design Quixotic here). I love the idea behind her latest personal project, Will Letter For Lunch. The idea is simple: Lauren will do lettering at various restaurants in NYC in exchange for lunch. I love that she photographs the food she ate at each place, as well as the lettering projects (feeling hungry!). Below are a few of my recent favorites. Restaurant and food info not noted here- be sure to check out her blog for full details!

Today I bring you the work of Cedilla, the design studio of Noémie Cédille. She describes her studio as a workshop, and her site as a platform for graphic experimentation. Her illustration and design work show a knowledge of design history, often incorporating Victorian design elements, but illustrated in a modernist way, or a delicate take on Russian Constructivism. Below are two of my favorite works of hers, Graphic research for the Opéra National de Paris, and Workshop paper masks made for the Pitchfork Music Festival Paris with Mint magazine, in collaboration with Lucille Michieli and Agathe Boudin.
