Today we celebrate Parfait Studio who serves up multi-layered
design solutions using words and images as main ingredients. Founded by Robin H. Ridley, her studio takes a detailed approach to visual and verbal expression.
.
Parfait Studio creates everything from print collateral (Ads, Brochures, Invitations, Annual Reports, etc.) to marketing signage. One of their favorite challenges is equipping new companies with visual, tangible tools for success: Business Name; Brand Identity (Logo+ Tagline); Stationery; Website…the works! They are constantly striving for the perfect way to tell their clients’ stories by blending creative ideas, well-crafted copy, and impactful imagery into one smooth concoction.
.
“Life is all about layers. What may seem simple on the surface is often filled with delicious complexity. Good communication stems from the same basic concept.” – Robin Ridley, Parfait Studio

If you are looking for professionalism coupled with creativity, character, consistency and capability, then you have come to the right place. I have worked with Parfait Studio on numerous occasions and am amazed at how they outdo themselves each time.

From their wordsmith talents and cutting edge design that is relevant instead of trendy to their dedication to stay on time and within budget, Parfait always delivers a stress-free experience. The attention to detail is reassuring and the level of organization frees me up to focus on my business not theirs.

The journey from concept to completion is truly a joy. I wholeheartedly endorse Parfait Studio.

View Parfait Studio’s portfolio today and see for yourself how multi-layered design can take your brand to the next level.

Today, and all next week, we celebrate American Craft Beer Week. The mission of American Craft Beer Week, which is May 16-22, 2011, is to encourage beer lovers everywhere to celebrate the accomplishments of America’s small and independent craft brewers.
.
Beer weeks are giving craft beer fans across the U.S. ever-increasing options to enjoy and share the beverage they love. Beer weeks celebrate the culture and community of craft beer, and give breweries and beer businesses the opportunity to connect with the fans.

According to the Brewer’s Association, an American craft brewer is small, independent and traditional.

Small: Annual production of 6 million barrels of beer or less. Beer production is attributed to a brewer according to the rules of alternating proprietorships. Flavored malt beverages are not considered beer for purposes of this definition.

Independent: Less than 25 percent of the craft brewery is owned or controlled (or equivalent economic interest) by an alcoholic beverage industry member who is not themselves a craft brewer.

Traditional: A brewer who has either an all malt flagship (the beer which represents the greatest volume among that brewers brands) or has at least 50 percent of its volume in either all malt beers or in beers which use adjuncts to enhance rather than lighten flavor.

The Brewers Association, the national non-profit association on behalf of the majority of today’s U.S. breweries, and publishers of CraftBeer.com, celebrate the culmination of these events each May with American Craft Beer Week (ACBW), The Mother of All Beer Weeks. This year, ACBW offers an exciting opportunity for small and independent craft brewers and the community of better beer retailers to feature craft beer in their community. Plus, tens of thousands of today’s beer beginners, beer enthusiasts, and hard core beer geeks make time to toast the week.

Of the roughly 1,716 craft breweries in the nation, Colorado has over 120 established craft brewers located across the state with many start up breweries in start up phase.

Visit here and find an ACBW event near you.

Novo Coffee is a wholesale coffee roasting company headquartered in Denver. As their name suggests, Novo Coffee was created with a goal of bringing new life to the coffee industry. It is their aim to promote the world of specialty coffee through the meticulous selection, roasting, brewing, and presentation of what they feel are some of the most distinctive and flavorful coffees available in today’s marketplace.

Novo’s goal is to reintroduce you to coffee. For starters, coffee didn’t originate in a European cafe amidst writers, lovesick poets, and starving artists. It comes from Ethiopia, where coffee is called Bunna, pronounced “BOON-NUH” in their native language of Amharic.

They say there is a little bit of science in every art and a little bit of art in every science. Nowhere is that more true than inside the Novo roastery. They strive to keep a foot in the past by connecting to origin, and supporting the communities that start their beans on their path to your cup. They also keep an eye to the future, developing roasting and brewing techniques that challenge convention and dramatically improve your coffee experience.
.
From sourcing some of the most unique and flavorful coffees in the world to roasting them in small batches in their 1960’s custom rebuilt Vittoria roasters to finally serving them in coffee bars, restaurants and homes, they live in the spirit of constant improvement in all aspects of our process.

Want to see for yourself? Give them a call to arrange an on site coffee cupping! 303-295-7678.

Today we look back at the Stance Friends and Fans featured in the first quarter of 2011.

We kicked the year off right and celebrated Culinary Connectors which shares the love, passion and excitement of Denver’s culinary world.

Next was Seattle Fish Company, the region’s largest supplier of fish. We celebrate them because they bring value and selection that are second to none — with the personal service of a three-generation, family-owned business.
.
Lagniappe (pronounced lan-yap), refers to a small, unexpected extra gift or benefit presented by a store owner to a customer at the time of purchase and is why we celebrated Marketing Lagniappe and their search for great service.

The following Friday we celebrated Diana and Michael Kearns, The Kearns Team, who take pride in their knowledge of Denver Real Estate, especially in Stapleton, Park Hill, Wash Park, Highlands, Whittier, Lowry and Lower Downtown.

And who can forget celebrating 34° Crispbread, also a local company, whose mission is simply to make the very best crackers that are as good on their own as they are with a little something extra — especially when that something extra is cheese.
.
Today we say happy birthday to CrossFit Denver, which was the first public CrossFit affiliate in Colorado opened in 2005 by Denver native, Randy Goldstein.

On St. Patrick’s Day we celebrated The St. Baldrick’s Foundation, the world’s largest volunteer-driven fundraising program for childhood cancer research that funds more in childhood cancer research grants than any organization.
.
We said farewell to March and celebrated The National MS Society Colorado Chapter, a collective of passionate individuals who want to do something about MS now, and Earth Force, who engages young people as active citizens who improve the environment and their communities now and in the future.

Which of these Stance Friends and Fans did you have an experience with?

Fadó Irish Pub in Denver will host an event on Friday, March 11, for the St. Baldrick’s Foundation where nearly 300 people will have their heads shaved by stylists from Salon and Spa on the Boulevard. Those shaving their heads will be enthusiastically cheered on by crowds of friends, family, doctors, nurses, children and others who have been touched by cancer in hopes to further awareness.  

On March 17, 2000, three executives turned their industry’s St. Patrick’s Day party into a head-shaving event to benefit kids with cancer. Their 20 “shavee” recruits planned to raise $17,000, and instead, they raised over $104,000.

The movement quickly grew into the world’s largest volunteer-driven fundraising program for childhood cancer research, and today the St. Baldrick’s Foundation funds more in childhood cancer research grants than any organization. Since 2000, more than 147,000 volunteers have shaved in solidarity with children with cancer and raised over $90 million for life-saving research, and each is a walking billboard for the cause.

A few of the kids being honored by the event: 

Preston has Stage 3A Hodgkin’s Lymphoma with cancer in his neck, top left clavicle, liver and spleen. He was treated at The Children’s Hospital and is currently in remission. He is eight years old and a hero and warrior.

Bella was one year old when she was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL). She was treated at The Children’s Hospital and is currently in remission. Her treatment ends March 11, 2011. Now three years old she remains strong and is an inspiration to everyone.

Fadó Irish Pub will donate 20 percent of food sales during the event to the St. Baldrick’s Foundation. Get involved and either shave your head, volunteer, eat or donate, but give hope to infants, children, teens and young adults fighting childhood cancers. Visit St. Baldrick’s Foundation website to learn how to be a shavee, support a team or donate in general.

CrossFit Denver is the fitness destination for Coloradans who are serious about improving their overall performance, general physical preparedness, body composition and quality of life. They work with professional athletes, weekend warriors, soccer moms, golfers, law enforcement personnel, firefighters, grandfathers, kids, business executives and everybody in between.

CrossFit is a nationally affiliated program developed by experts in functional fitness. Their program delivers a fitness that is, by design, broad, general and inclusive. Their specialty is not specializing.

We are CrossFit Denver (YouTube Video)

CrossFit Denver was the first public CrossFit affiliate in Colorado opened in 2005 by Denver native, Randy Goldstein. Slowly but surely, Randy’s passion for CrossFit and coaching began spreading the CrossFit word and educating the masses on its bountiful benefits in life, health and fitness. CrossFit wants to give you all the information you need to make an informed decision whether it’s a good fit for your fitness goals. They don’t want unhappy members who have been “trapped” into a commitment.

The first step is for you to get to know them, and for them to get to know you. I personally started CrossFit this week and can feel that the rewards will be great.

34 Degrees – What Does It Mean? Thirty-four degrees is the latitude of Sydney, Australia, where company founder Craig Lieberman discovered his passion for food and wine. It’s also where he got his first taste of Australian crispbread, the inspiration for their thin and crispy crackers. In 2003, Craig launched 34 Degrees and began importing specialty foods from Australia. Eventually Craig’s desire to bring his business and his love of food closer to home illuminated the need to take the company in a new direction. In 2008, he discontinued his importing venture to become a manufacturer focused exclusively on making 34° Crispbread in Colorado.
.
Mission – Simply to make the very best crackers that are as good on their own as they are with a little something extra — especially when that something extra is cheese. Taking pride and pleasure in what they do today, knowing that their creativity and commitment to innovation will elevate their customers’ enjoyment of 34° Crispbread tomorrow. Using a handful of natural ingredients, they carefully bake wafer-thin crackers until they are subtly toasty and overtly tasty. 34° Crispbread offers six varaties: Natural, Sesame, Cracked Pepper, Rosemary, Lemon Zest and Whole Grain. 

.What makes them so clever?
: The
perfect companion to cheese.
: Simply made, simply delicious.
: Effortless entertaining.
:
Clean and crisp.
: They’re good for you.
