2014 Design Contest Winners and Entries!

Sorry to make everyone wait. It’s all because I agonized for so long about which ones to choose. I knew I wanted to head in a new direction, more artistic and less branded. Everyone that buys these teas know where they come from and so we try to match the lovely teas this year with some nice artwork that will (hopefully) create a synergistic effect.

This year’s winners are all new people. Previous winners also submitted some very good entries, and through no fault of their own I didn’t choose those designs. I just want you all to know that my choice is based largely on the designs we needed.  Sara’s and Igor’s will be used for our raw cakes for Spring and Autumn, whereas Luca’s and Martin’s designs will be used for some ripe cakes we are planning! I apologize in advance if my not choosing your entry upsets you. You are all winners and everyone did a great job! I am incredibly fortunate to have so many wonderful artists and designers submitting their entries this year.  It’s an honor and I thank every one of you!

1st. Sara Pellerin (Canada)
2nd. Igor Kozhanov (Russia)
3rd. Luca Fossati (Italy)
4th. Martin Ostrolucký (???)
