The Final Countdown!
This was one of the first renderings we received from Riley Hamilton from Digital Quill Studios several months ago, when this dream of ours first kickstarted. It's safe to say, if you drive by the corner of Grant and Walnut, you'll see we've stuck pretty close to our original concept, and we're pretty proud of the outcome.
With construction winding down and opening day approaching, it would have been literally impossible for us to pull this off without the diligent efforts and hard work of the outstanding people that contributed their expert crafts.
Thank you to Riley Hamilton for your hard work on our outstanding renderings. You successfully put our imagination to paper in a way that simply and perfectly expressed the idea we envisioned. And for the record folks, Riley went above and beyond with these renderings! He gave us several pretty wicked prototypes, and we kept having him simplify! You can see more of his amazing work when you observe the storefronts of Farmer's Park in South Springfield. Boatloads of thanks to you as well for our KICKIN' logos! You listened carefully and patiently, tethered our requests together seamlessly, and created two amazing logos that we're very proud to brand ourselves with for years to come.
Thank you to Jack Ball Architects for their diligence at making this shop perfect. Thank you for your advice and guidance on matters that otherwise would have been totally overlooked. Your attention to detail is truly appreciated.
Thank you to Jason Henley with Henley Painting for the stellar transformation you created outside the shop. First impressions are everything, and you absolutely created an eye-catching canvas. We promise we'll call with a verdict when the battle over the tile has been waged, but until then, we'll leave you out of it!
Last but certainly not least, a HUGE heartfelt thanks to Jack Wright with Complete Construction Plus for being the captain that steered this crazy ship for the last several months. You are a true artist and professional at every craft under the construction sun. Your advisement during this process has been priceless, and the outcome is exactly what we intended: to create a space that is current and inviting while paying homage to the rich history of the building itself. You and your team made this happen, and we will always be grateful. Haircuts and beers are on us from now on.
Thank you, to everyone who could lend a hand (and moral support!) these past months. This particular business is built on the clients and friends that support us, and we are grateful for ALL of you. We can't wait to move in and hit the ground running.
