The Nordic Bakery

Nordic Bakery

The Nordic Bakery is a Scandinavian inspired café with locations in Marylebone and Soho, London. They recently launched a low fat Finnish wholegrain dark rye chip that marks their first foray into the world of pre-packed bakery products and expands on the café’s proposition with an interesting minimal aesthetic.

The execution, in the convoluted world of snack foods is wonderfully refreshing, its simple uncoated white pack has a stark and reductionist style with a slight homebaked sensibility. As a previous student of furniture design the iconic image of  Finish architect Alvar Aalto’s Chair 66 is a particular highlight and expresses the concept of relaxation, the interior space of the café and should play well to a discerning consumer. The use of Helvetica, while quite a saturated typeface (and with a conceptually floored Swedish origin) is strong, functional and compliments the aesthetic values of the store. The colour palette while predominately white has a contrasting Scandinavian wood tone that delivers warmth and the draws on the wholegrain nature of the chip.

Thank you to everyone who has visited BP&O since its beginning in 2011. As many of you know, BP&O has always been a free-to-access design blog that seeks to offer extended opinion on brand identity work. It has sought to be the antithesis of the social media platform that often disentangles form, context and content. Writing articles can take 2-4hrs and are carefully researched.

I am passionate about design writing and believe that spending time to write about work, rather than just posting images, furthers design discourse. If you have enjoyed this article, have been with the site from its early days and would like to help contribute to its future, please consider supporting the site with a small PayPal donation. This will go towards the costs of hosting, CDN (to make the site quick to load) and Mailchimp, and cover some of the time it takes to research, write-up, format and share posts.
