Made in Bath is a new book about the dynamic spirit of makers in Bath, sharing the stories of 18 modern-day creatives, craftspeople, engineers and innovators. It is a snapshot of Bath today – not just a heritage site, but a hotbed of ideas and ceaseless energy, with a culture of creativity and craftsmanship. The book celebrates Bath-based makers who share a philosophy of doing things well, and take great pride in their work.

It's the result of a collaboration between two local makers – Mytton Williams, a design studio and Opal Print.

Available in local bookshops and on Amazon from November.

“Breaking the rules is the first thing you do. I’d never slavishly give a client what they asked for. I wouldn’t be doing my job if I did that. Give them something that surprises them, then articulate why they need it.”

Mytton Williams
The designers

We are a brand and design studio, helping organisations to stand out, tell their story, communicate what they offer and why it matters. We do this through brand communications: creating, developing and managing brands and how they work across all media. Our ethos and aim as a company is to produce brands and designs that are simple, smart and timeless. The simplicity – trying to reduce everything down to its essence – can be hard work but is always worth it. 

Over the years our projects have included developing the Clarks brand identity, redesigning the Time Out guides and creating the identity for Thermae Bath Spa and have won many awards for effectiveness and creativity.

Opal Print
The printers

At Opal we produce printed communications that not only communicate visually, but also provoke our other senses, even smell! Translating a message through print starts from the moment a piece of work is picked up; this is achieved through the use of the finest papers, creative techniques and carefully considering the purpose for which the work is intended.

Our recent projects have included working with Don McCullin (pictured) on a three-volume lifetime retrospective of his work. In both 2016 and 2018 we won ‘Best in Show’ at the Antalis Review Design and Print awards.
