The Refresh: 1st Edition

The Refresh

A weekly dose of inspiration to reignite your creative spark

I’ve considered myself a creative for years. However, that doesn’t mean I’m constantly bubbling over with new ideas. Creativity ebbs and flows. I believe the only way to get out of an “ebb” phase is to break from routine and seek out the unfamiliar. I find so many inspirational gems each week that I wanted an outlet with which to share them with other like-minded individuals. Thus, The Refresh was born.

The Refresh is a weekly newsletter intended to rejuvenate creativity. Each Friday it features interesting articles, images and graphics to illuminate new perspectives and inspire imaginative thinking.

I hope this newsletter will serve as a weekly reminder to help you step away from habitual routines to refresh your mind. Happy reading!

Kara Rosenlund’s newest print series, East Coast of Australia, further justifies my desire to travel to Australia. Also loving her sketch book.
