Cinnamon bun week on Colorset

Nordic Bakery is a Scandinavian-style café founded in London in 2007. There are now three beautifully designed cafés around London, offering simple Nordic bakery products in a peaceful, simple, well designed environment. Aside from the food, the Nordic Bakery pays attention to all aspects of design. As their website states: "We have selected timeless and authentic design pieces for serving our food and drink. The tableware and furniture are designed by iconic Nordic designers, such as Kaj Franck, Alvar Aalto and Ilmari Tapiovaara".

I've written about their simple and effective use of our Colorset before on this blog, but they have recently produced these new posters on Colorset Deep Orange 270gsm, for this month's Cinnamon Bun Week - sounds yummy!

The superbly executed typographic design is by Supergroup Studios, based in Helsinki and London. Creative directors are Jaakko Tuomivaara and Roy Haapakoski. Supergroup have worked with Nordic Bakery since the beginning and have developed their brand in all areas, including packaging for their retail products.

The previous A2 prints on our Colorset 100% Recycled 270gsm, have been one colour for each café. Dorset Street is on Tuscan Brown, New Cavendish Street on Crimson and Golden Square on Indigo.

The prints are silkscreen printed in two colours by Dan Holliday at The Mangle Press (known locally as "Dan the Mangle"!)
