These Chicago coffee roasters

We’ll take you from zero to a ready-for-market brand

FAST, AND WITHOUT ALL THE USUAL AGENCY BLAH BLAH BLAH

We did it for these businesses, meeting them where they were, usually with only a faint idea of what they wanted their brands to look like, feel like and sound like.

These Chicago coffee roasters

…were ahead of their time when we encountered them as a startup. Just a coffee-loving couple with tons of ability, their ambition was to become Chicago’s premier boutique coffee roasters. Both had decades of foodservice experience, so they knew that while there was money to be made in retail, the real untapped potential in the Chicago market was in wholesale.

 What they needed was a brand that could go anywhere. That is, a brand that would speak as clearly to time-pressed commuters and espresso-sipping hipsters as it would to margin-conscious restauranteurs and all-business distributors. The brand had to be cool but not alienating, stripped down but resonant.
