Reka Juhasz

I have been itching to get back to exploring Hungarian folk patterns ever since an immature attempt at college to create an identity based on Hungarian embroidery shapes. The flowers, vines, dots and colors are all inherently different based on the regions of the country. I meshed and combined all shapes and sizes of the most interesting patterns to create what makes me excited on a daily basis—letters and typography.

A Hungarian born, American trained graphic designer, Reka has a passion for all things paper, letterpress and sushi related. View Work

Matt Zolman

Exposed to comic books at a young age, I fell in love with the storytelling and art medium immediately. From that storytelling, I imagined being a superhero running around the back yard and as most superheroes need tools to fight the bad guys, I picked up the bow and arrow. This love for both, led me to creating art for myself as well as the life long hobby of shooting competitive target archery.

Growing up shooting archery, the sport is part of my roots with the 3 arrows representing my wife and 2 kids who have captured my heart. And it's the Valentine's month with Cupid taking aim of spreading love. View Work

I was given the name Robin because I was born in the first month of Spring. It took decades for me to appreciate this season, but now it brings life for me in many ways. It's like a heavy weight is lifted giving everything a chance to begin again. All with the anticipation and belief that this time around, we will yield amazing things.

Robin loves designing. Whether it's a layout, photograph, home or friend's personal life. View Work

Rainy days weren't always dreaded, at least not by me. Growing up I cherished days spent in the rain but life got busy and rain became an inconvenience. Let's get back to our roots. The next time it's raining I encourage you to come out from under your umbrella and learn to play again.

I love illustrating things! Growing up, me and my four brothers would spend countless hours listening to Joy Electric and drawing pictures of far away lands. I grew up in a very creative environment and was always encouraged in my creative endeavors. I would be nothing without my God and my wife Mackenzie. View Work

Gevi Marotz

My father's family were pilgrims who came over in the Mayflower. I hand drew the ship and ocean as separate images and combined them together to make one graphic.

As an omen of good fortune, let this Peony be a reminder that every person, every idea, and every dream had to endure a little dirt in order to grow – set roots, fear no obstacles, and be patient for the bloom.

If I could get back all the time I've dedicated to the internet...boy, would that be a lot of time. View Work

Molli Ross

Dandelions are natures sparklers. What better way to encapture the month of july than by combining two of my favorite childhood summer past-times; wishing upon the drifting florets of a dandelion and being mesmerized by the glow of an Independence Day sparkler.

Molli is a passionate designer in Dayton, OH. She enjoys coffee, cats, calligraphy, and alliteration. View Work

If I want to look back to my roots I must first look forward to the future. I could not pass up this opportunity to celebrate Back to the Future in 2015—a year with such technological achievements as the hoverboard, self-lacing shoes, and hydrated pizza! More importantly, BTTF helped define me, my love of film and my imagination. Whether it's the great outdoors or the Skyways of Hill Valley, in 2015 I hope you find yourself where you don't need roads.

Anthony likes to design pretty things, loves Back to the Future, and absolutely hates pickles. View Work

I chose September because it marks the start of fall. Fall is my favorite season to partake in one of my favorite past times: camping. Sitting around a camp fire, exposed, unplugged, sharing stories, and making memories with the people you care about is one of the best things in life. The totem pole comes from my Native American heritage which has always reminded me to get outside and not forget where I come from.

Dayton, Ohio born and raised. If I'm not designing or building websites you will likely find me outside with my wife and daughter, on my motorcycle, or playing in my band. View Work

I chose to illustrate October by going back to its roots rather than portraying mine. I spelled out the remainder of the month's name with a word that shares its root. Plus... octopus tentacles are just pretty rad.

Sara is often found with a Red Bull in one hand and a cup of coffee in the other. She is a sarcastic person with really bad posture, and she guesses design is pretty cool too. View Work

Whether they are buried deep in the ground or reaching through history and time; roots are the building blocks of life. Without them, there would be no tradition to carry on, nor knowledge to share with others. There would be no trees for a bird to build its nest, no place for you to call home.
