Logo Design & Brand Development Process

One of the first things a new business needs is a logo, and if you want your business to have a cohesive, professional appearance, developing your brand’s overall visual style is equally important.

Why We Use Upcycled Garments

You may have heard the term “upcycled” and not been sure of it’s meaning, or maybe rolled your eyes at another trendy eco-term being thrown around the clothing and furniture industries. So we’re explaining why we use this term, what it means for our products, and why we believe it’s the best choice for our…

Behind the Design: Pacific Bottom Dwellers

I’ve always had a deep fascination and connection with the sea. Countless hours of my childhood were spent in the ocean learning to surf in San Clemente, CA, or walking down the sandy beaches. After the years passed my love for the sea drove me in new directions. Now many years later, I have found…

Behind the Design: Endangered Coral Reefs

One design that we’ve chosen to print on our line of upcycled clothing, is of a piece of coral with the words, “Let Me Live”. This graphic carries a very important message that we’d love to discuss here, and share the inspiration behind creating it. Living close to the ocean has given us daily appreciation…

Minimalism : In Design + Lifestyle

If we had to choose the most powerfulΒ principal to live by both in our lifestyle and design style, we would have to sayΒ Minimalism. In a world crowded with thoughts, sales, news, promos, (exasperated gasp…) opinions, photos, advice and an overabundance of unnecessary material goods – it is easy to drown in the noise, and lose…

Rio Celeste : A Photo Blog

A couple weeks ago we took a road trip to Rio Celeste, the river and waterfall known for its surrealΒ blue color. Rio Celeste is not far from Liberia airport, heading towards Arenal Volcano, in the Tenorio National Park. Most of the drive is on paved roads except for the last stretch after reaching the park…

Super Healthy Tropical Smoothies: Part I

One of the best things about living in the tropics is the abundance of fresh, local fruit. I had never tried many of the local tropical fruit before moving here, and now I can’t imagine life without these sweet, exotic and best of all – HEALTHY! – treats. Costa Rica is a hot spot for…
