I decided to soften the orange a bit and touched up the lettering. Also, I started a poll to decide between "MAIL is the new luxury" or "Offline is the new luxury". Thank you all for your feedback!

Design challenges for minted usually has us all creating with our hands, so to me, offline is more accurate :)

I like the mail luxury one! It's so nice to remember the good old days of paper and a card arriving in the mail-

I like the color! My husband and I weren't sure what the gray things are (a pen? computer cords" but we like the look!

Love the message on this one - however, I am also having a little trouble telling what the items are, especially to the right of the door.

Thanks for your comments! The whole message is about the things that are "offline" being a luxury now. The illustrations are of internet cords (like a phone cord...if you remember what that even looks like!). I'm not sure how I could modify them since it sort of drives home my statement since the lettering is made up of the wires. I started with writing "Offline is the new luxury"...should I go back to this? Any ideas? THX.

Hmm...I like the message and my husband did think they were internet cords. I totally see it when you say that's what they are. I'm torn about switching it. Offline would make it more clear that they are internet cords. On the other hand, a lot of what Minted is about is nice, luxury mail.
