Handmade and hand-sprayed
The brief for this new version of the wine list was to reflect the low-tech industial feel of Mud Dock’s café. In response, I created an idea for a wooden board to which the pages of the wine list could be bolted using nickel interscrews. The boards themselves were a bespoke shape and size, made for me by my father, an accomplished carpenter.
I then sprayed the boards black myself. On the back, I used a grafitti-style stencil of Mud Dock’s iconic café chair. This gave the boards a suitably urban-Bristolian feel – albeit at the risk of making them prized keepsakes for unscrupulous customers!
