Through conveying patience and helping graphic designers think about their process, resilience, and relationship to their own work, Tea Break aims to reframe the busy culture that most graphic designers are aware of.

Tea invites a slower, more intentional space for growth, reflection, and meditation while embracing the creative process.

Visual Language

The book blends both neutral and meditative colors with pops of color. The image of the “gaiwan” became central to the brand of Tea Break, a simple piece of teaware prominent in the gong-fu brewing tea ceremony.


Tea Break includes a guidebook and a sample box of tea to compliment the guidebook.
