I've worked with Creta on multiple projects and have always had a wonderful experience!
Working with Mogley was an absolute pleasure. With his clear and quick correspondences, professional demeanor, and an incredible design sense, it made the entire experience easy and fun. Every draft he proposed was fresh and exciting. I highly recommend Mogley and would love to work with him in the future.
Listens to suggestions and creates original work. With little design direction this designer understands what to create on his own. Other designers need to have everything spelled out to them, this person can create something original while understanding what the customer wants.

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
We are a startup company that is currently designing a new line of espresso machines that will target the niche manual lever machine market coupled with a new twist. Our target audience will be found in independent coffee houses in urban locales. They are always looking for the new, alternative music, alternative apparel, they know and read http://www.mcsweeneys.net. They love the art of coffee, probably have a Hario V60 at home, possibly a manual lever espresso machine, they appreciate latte art and care about the coffee beans that are in their favorite espresso drinks. They live on their smart phones, love to share snarky tweets, filtered pictures, and love to be the first to share a new spot they found or the best hamburger in town. They love exposed brick and renovated manufacturing spaces.

Logo types to explore
To give us an idea of the overall feeling of your brand, let us know which styles you lean towards
Great espresso is currently about the art of the pour. Great metal is about the science of the pour. Foundry Coffee Company aims to empower the espresso artist with some new science. The metal foundry crucible is the icon I want to see in any logo treatment. The crucible pours the molten metal into the mold, the espresso is poured into fine china. Pouring is the kinetic element I would like conveyed if there is any "action" in the design at all (not required). The Margaret Bourke-White photos uploaded show a few crucibles pouring metal for reference and very closely evoke the feeling I want to feel when the logo is presented. The AlterEgo logo is a strong example of that same feeling in logo format. They use red in their print and name to accent the heavy black/white pallet, burnt oranges could potentially accent Foundry Coffee Company's logo.
