From small bakery, to bigger premises, to opening a cafe – our story has been one of growth. As demand has risen, so have we, filling our shelves everyday with exceptional bread and pastry, all made in house.
Situated on Sheffield’s iconic Abbeydale Road, Forge Bakehouse has been baking bread and other delicious treats for the lovely people of Sheffield since 2012. Quality driven and with a strong commitment to supporting local producers, Forge Bakehouse makes everything from scratch and never uses improvers or additives in any of their products. By giving locals a wide variety of real bread types to try, Forge Bakehouse has built a solid customer base over the years and has continued to remain a popular local favourite amongst students and Sheffielders alike.
To align with the highly respected reputation that the business has amassed, a fresh new, flexible identity was needed that could be seamlessly translated into web and used on Forge’s growing range of products sold in store. Martha had a clear idea of what she wanted, so it was just a matter of helping to bring that vision to life.
“All of our sourdoughs and yeasted bread and pastries are long fermented over multiple days. We believe bread should be honest, simple and satisfying.”
The design has continued to carry through Forge’s signature yellow and teal colour palette whilst injecting the brand with a more playful, comical feel to reflect the relaxed dining atmosphere. The branding also showcases Forge Bakehouse’s freshly baked products using carefully balanced compositions used throughout.
03.Web Design & Development
The new website makes generous use of white space, bold typography and clean lines to give the site a fresh and modern look. We wanted the design to be in keeping with the beautifully understated branding, helping to strengthen the impact of the mouth-watering range of pastries, loafs and preserves available. ‘Simple but significant’ was our mantra.
