Take a sneak peek at what makes our newest Creative Council members tick.

Take a look:
This past weekend we ventured to the desert and hooked up with StyleCaster to kick off Coachella at the UGG StyleHaven house amidst a mélange of industry insiders. Heating things up on the turntables was “It Girl” Chelsea Leyland. The UK transplant and resident music maven gave us the inside scoop on her music fest essentials.
- Don’t miss: Jurassic 5, Disclosure, The Stone Roses, Blur, Wu Tang, Red Hot Chili Pepers, Theophilius London, Jamie xx, and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs.
- Bring hat – it’s always hot, seriously.
- Drink TONS of water
- Bring a charger – EVERYWHERE or you’re out of luck – and lost.
- Don’t take yourself too seriously. There are too many people here who take themselves too seriously. They’re worried about the clothes they’re wearing rather then the music that’s playing. I’m English and I grew up going to festivals and there it was all about getting muddy and living in the music. Come enjoy Coachella and enjoy the music.

We LOVE the interweb. In the midst of trolling through Grumpy Cat pictures and Instagramed latte foam art we came across a few awesome individuals with a streak of creativity that makes us slightly envious. These folks are supremely talented and we’ve partnered with them to showcase their buzz-worthy work. Meet our newest inspiration, or as we like to call them: The Creative Council.
Be sure to check back over the next few months to watch their work evolve.
Designlovefest was created in 2009 out of Bri’s own obsession with type and images, and is, in fact, where the two go to totally make out. DLF rapidly became a daily read for over ten thousand people, thanks to Bri’s exquisitely curated layouts featuring bright colors and fabulous design, mixed with witty typography and a flair for the unexpected.
