The Vigilante Head, our newest logo was designed by local illustrator & artist, Wences Almazan. Wences has been a great customer and friend to our cafe for many years. Always drawing and creating inside the cafes. One day, we approached Wences and explained that we wanted to do a logo together. We discussed the idea for a while, and he asked, "what should the character be inspired from" and this is what we told him, "The Vigilante Head character should embody the vibe of Vigilante Coffee. This character is a Vigilante following in the tradition of Batman but more like Rorschach from Watchmen." Two days later this design is what Wences had created. A perfect fit.
Notice the skateboard eyes within the design, representing our humble beginnings of delivering coffee by skateboard in DC to the restaurants and businesses that served our coffee. The skateboard eyes also represent the mini skateboard shops in both of our cafes, serving as the local skate shop to College Park and Hyattsville. We offer a variety of short, long, and old school shaped boards as well as your basic needs for trucks, bearings, & wheels.
We love it when you rep your Vigilante gear with pride - so rock any of your gear into the stores and you'll get an automatic 10% off on your drink. Think about it…support your local coffee shop while simultaneously supporting local artist…while simultaneously looking like a BAMF!
