Best Packaging Design

Stumptown Cold Brew

Up and coming coffee roaster Stumptown won the award for Packaging Design this year for its Stumptown Cold Brew.

The fact that they chose a stubby -- a little brown glass bottle that has been around forever -- and turned it into something that feels modern, cool, and innovative impressed the panel a lot. Plus, they did a great job executing the vintage style label art. Both of these are very consistent with the Stumptown brand.

The label is clean, readable and direct - you know exactly what it is. Plus, the silkscreen application gives the appearance of quality, which is what Stumptown is all about. Just from looking at it, it's clear that the coffee inside the bottle isn't going to disappoint.
