Here’s a website and brand with a delightful story … Once upon a time there was a little girl called Little Miss Purphy who loved to bake – the only thing was, she couldn’t pronounce her real name – Murphy! Only a sweet ‘Purphy’ could be heard – and Murphy became Purphy, the childhood nickname for Glasgow’s Lynn Stafford (nee Murphy) – the name Lynn’s dad called her all the time she was growing up. Aaaah!
Lynn has since had a family of her own and now they’re all grown up she wanted to start a small business, specialising in the traditional, home-made sweets and treats she has inherited from her mother and generations before: wonderful Scottish recipes she’s known, refined and used all her life. She’s also had the perfect business name since childhood – Purphy’s!
I’ve also known Lynn all my life – she’s my mother’s neighbours’ daughter, like a cousin to me - and when I was little (told you this story was cute) she made all my dollies outfits, in the latest fashion – dresses, hats, shoes, the works – I loooooved them! Now we’re (well) past the dollies stage it was my turn to design Lynn’s website - ha, ha I think I’ve overdone the schmaltz now – and it was a delight to do, featuring all the gorgeous things little girls are made of – sugar and spice and all things nice.
Purphy’s specialises in delicious, traditional Scottish, homemade treats using inherited family recipes – ideal for weddings and Christening favours, events, gifts, or tea-time treats, all wrapped up in a traditional flavour of Scotland. I have created the logo, brand and website. Its very much a starter website. As the business grows and if Lynn wants to, the logo and brand can be used further, applied to a range of supporting collateral and packaging. The glossy, chocolatey tones and beautiful photography demonstrate the quality of their products and attention to detail Lynn applies to everything she does, and has done since a young girl.
Nicest of all, this is a business with true family values at its very heart. As they say in Scotland – ‘from my family to your family’ – enjoy the delicious products from Purphy’s.
