Empowering Devon's Artisans: Collaborating with Bespoke + Local for Independent Retailer Month

Let us introduce you to another remarkable gem in Exeter's independent scene: Bespoke + Local, a locally-rooted retailer specialising in crafting exquisite luxury gift boxes.

Founded by Alison Logan, Bespoke + Local is a passionate advocate for the spirit of independence. Alison's commitment to her craft goes beyond the art of curating luxurious items – she's made it her mission to exclusively source from Devon's own pool of artisans. This conscious decision not only adds a touch of local authenticity to each box but also empowers Devon-based craftsmen and women, providing them with a platform to showcase their skills to the world.

When you choose a Bespoke + Local gift box, you're not only acquiring a beautifully presented selection of products, you're participating in a movement that breathes life into the intricate crafts woven into the fabric of Devon's communities. 

Our collaboration with Bespoke + Local has been a harmonious journey of creativity and dedication. We've had the pleasure of assisting them with a range of printing projects that enrich the essence of their gift boxes. For backdrops that set the perfect scene, we've printed large mounted boards that provide a captivating visual backdrop for the contents of the boxes. 

Within every Bespoke + Local gift box lies more than objects – there are meticulously crafted business cards and note cards that serve as enduring keepsakes. The premium quality of these notecards is a testament to Bespoke + Local's commitment to excellence. Printed lithographically and adorned with a premium matt laminate, they're designed to enhance the vibrant hues of the artwork.

A fascinating aspect of Bespoke + Local's notecard and logo artwork lies in its creation. The designs spring from the ingenious mind of Exeter-based artist Chris Holmes. Using a computer-generated art process, Chris employs an algorithm that generates a vast array of image permutations based on a random 'seed' number. This approach ensures that each notecard and logo is as unique as the artisans themselves.
