If it ain’t Dutch, it ain’t much. BrandGraaf’s bold new character study is ready to party like it’s 1899.

2. FriendsCompete

FriendsCompete mascot
By ratoch

South African app FriendsCompete needed a character that said “friendly competition.” This giraffe stood head and shoulders above the rest (yes, giraffes have shoulders).

3. Cuna Vida

Packaging design
By LoveSugah

Moms living that Cuna Vida (“Crib Life”) now have a way to treat owies that’s as hip as they are.

4. Summer Fires

Gnarly beard? Check. Trucker hat? Check. Is Austin, Texas band Summer Fires ready to move some merchandise this festival season? Check one-two.

5. Business card

Modern business card design
By vanessanoheart

This clean, grid-based design helps Calgary’s GDE Family Law cut through the clutter.

6. Maltman’s Pale Ale

Maltman's Brewery

With plenty of white space and a hardworking layout, Maltman’s new beer label is all-business. And business is good.

7. Emoji game icon

This app icon for RichZ8’s emoji-based quiz game works hard, and looks great doing it.  (Have emojis had thumbs this whole time?)

8. Signor Bologna’s Swazzle

T-shirt design
By Horror Rudey

Barley wine packs a punch. So does this t-shirt design for Signor Bologna’s Swazzle Barley Wine.

9. La Lupita

La Lupita
By Marrieta

La Lupita is a little girl who found a holy scarf belonging to the Virgin Mary. Today, she watches over children during Holy Week. Think: “Elf on the Shelf” but much cuter.
