BRANDING, PRINT AND WEB DESIGN
John Polley Brand Communications has provided The Handmade Bakery with stylish bakery literature, branded signage design and livery work along with their website for browsers to find out more about their delicious breads and the bread-making courses they run from the premises. The Bakery has expanded from the original two owners in 2011 to their twelve strong co-operative members and part-time staff.
The Handmade Bakery was one of the first co-operatives to emerge from the new trend of artisan makers in Britain. The bakery started from small beginnings using the stone-bottomed pizza oven of a nearby Italian restaurant during 'off-hours’. The Handmade Bakery became the first subscription bread service in Britain by providing members of the Bread Club with a loaf each week. Having now established itself in their current premises by the canal in Slaithwaite, West Yorkshire they have expanded from a simple bakery into a café and gallery space, serving coffees, teas, cakes, breakfasts and lunchtime meals. It is a local favourite pit-stop for walkers and families in the area.
