3 Tiers in the Star Trib!

Check out Rick Nelson’s write up on 3 Tiers in the Taste section! Huzzah!

The Spunk garden flourishes.

In other news, our garden is growing.



Holy Hail!

Gargantuan hail yesterday at the shop. Power outages, too. All hell is breaking loose.

Augsburg Fortress interior!

As you may or may not know, Spunk updated Augsburg Fortress‘s brand identity a few years ago. We hadn’t been in their downtown office in awhile and found out yesterday that they recently spruced up parts of their interior with a vinyl wall covering featuring the refreshed brand logo and artwork. Needless to say, it was pretty fun for us to see! (I look like I’m having fun, right?)

Banana Air Guitar Challenge!

What’s better than playing Air Guitar? Playing Air Guitar dressed as a Banana, of course! And that’s exactly what went down at Willy Street Co-op’s Annual Meeting and Party last Thursday. We sadly couldn’t be in our neighbor state to go B-A-N-A-N-A-S, but we did get to design the poster for this a’peel’ing challenge! And, as always, mad props to Luke Mills for being such a badass banana.

Makin’ magic at 3 Tiers!


We recently had the pleasure of branding our neighbors, 3 Tiers Bakery Bistro, and Craig and Lucas got down to it installing the new graphics on their windows today. It’s worth it to stop by and check ‘em out, perhaps as you savor the highly-recommended and wonderfully-paired Flying Dog IPA and Meatloaf Sandwich…

Joia Life goes live!

This just in – the Joia website went live today! Check it out here!

Joia to the World!

Lately we’ve had the true joia of partnering with Boundary Waters Brands to help name and brand their new line of all natural soda. Joia All Natural Soda is a tantalizing combination of fruits, herbs and spices that creates layers of intensely fresh flavor for a wonderfully refreshing beverage. The four flavors offered are Grapefruit Chamomile & Cardamom, Lime Hibiscus & Clove, Blackberry Pomegranate & Ginger, and Pineapple Coconut & Nutmeg… and let us just say, they are all as good as they sound!

Check out this recent write-up in the Southwest Journal.

And don’t forget to try Joia for yourself!! Find it at The Wedge, Linden Hills Co-op, French Meadow Bakery, Cuppa Joe, Whole Foods or Lunds.
