The Perk Downtown is literally one of my favorite places on the planet. Not only do they offer exquisite roasts—locally sourced—but they sit in the middle of breathtaking Colorado Springs, CO.

Also, we managed to throw in a little logo / name treatment design along the way for kicks. When in Rome . . . (o.k., that phrase totally doesn't apply here but I've only had three cups of coffee today, so forgive misuse of cliches, please.)Read More
