The graphic designer’s caffeinated creativity started while experimenting with the idea of microcosms in Photoshop. “I was just playing with the idea of creating my own little worlds,” she says. Her wildly imaginative, often outlandish Instagram coffee mugs make your artfully foamed lattes look downright boring.

Photographer Beth Moon’s images of ancient trees straddle the line between fantasy and reality. To capture long exposure images like this one, Moon spent many moonless nights treking through South Africa, Namibia, and Botswana. Trees have long been a subject of hers—her book Ancient Trees is a collection of her stunning platinum print images of the largest, oldest, and most storied trees on earth. For this series, Moon was inspired by scientific studies that link tree growth to the heavens, an idea that was at once romantic and alluring.
