Located in the heart of Leslieville, Toronto — this classic bakeshop whips up fresh goods seven days a week. From cupcakes and cookies to cakes and squares — using the same quality ingredients that you grew up eating at home. Desmond & Beatrice hired us to design their identity system and brand collateral. To stand out from the competition we also created custom illustrations using a controlled and modern colour palette, in a style that keeps the brand feeling playful and appealing to everyone.
