...This business card/ punch card from Stumptown Coffee. I love the awesome lettering and the simple illustration. I'm working on my own business card design right now so I've been picking up cards I see that inspire me. Calligraphy-ish type is so great, so expressive. And this card is so old fashioned looking, that's what I like about it the most, I think. So many business cards I see look like they were made on a template using the fonts on everyone's computer. I need some great inspiration!

My first time at Stumptown was not a disappointment! Hit up the West 8th Street location to meet a friend. I love the look and feel of this place, very old fashioned looking. It would make a great hang out spot. Their latte art is spot on which weirdly starts to matter when you drink a lot of these. Like if the design isn't good the designer in me is very unhappy. I really love their mugs the most. The beautiful script appears after you take a few sips- clever. And check out that insane "S." #designerproblems. Side note- had a really interesting rosemary current scone there, as well. My first bite was ehh as I'm not a huge herb person. (rosemary, fennel, those types of things in my food gross me out) But I was just super in the mood for a scone today so I went for it and the flavor actually really grew on me. As far as scones go it was pretty perfect- dense but not dry, buttery but not greasy, and a little crumbly but not messy. I wonder where Stumptown gets their baked goods. I'm not sure I would eat another Rosemary scone but everything else was spot on!
