Sometimes digital just doesn’t do it. This month our designers went for an organic, earthy feel with hand-drawn lettering and imagery big on one-of-a-kind appeal.

Our nine nominees include packaging for an artisanal cold brew coffee, a logo for a sleek German restaurant, a pattern for a sweet baby apparel brand, an inspirational coloring book and more.

In the end, Keyshod took the prize with their gorgeous branding for Cloud Nine, an artisanal cold brew brand. The Veuve Cliquot-inspired packaging will make you feel like a caffeinated rockstar.

Let’s take another look:
