Blue Nile Cafe

In 2017, we launched a new look for this popular Ethiopian restaurant in Kansas City, Missouri. Bread & Roses designed the original site for the restaurant in 2008. We also run their social media promotions and handle their print materials.

Diastole Scholar’s Center

The Diastole Center is a non-profit space located adjacent to the UMKC Medical School and associated with the University of Missouri-Kansas City. The center serves primarily as an events space and retreat for the university, but it is also known for its art collection.

In 2013, Bread and Roses developed a new website for this prominent health news website. publishes daily news on new research in the fields of HIV, Hepatitis, and related diseases. They frequently report from conferences held around the world, so special sections on conferences was a big priority. We migrated an older version of the website to Joomla, a content management system like WordPress and Drupal.

Murray Company

The Murray Company provides construction management for hospitals and healthcare organizations based in the Midwest. We developed a new website for them which showcased the projects they’ve managed.

Nell Hills

Nell Hills is a popular furniture and home furnishings store with two locations in Kansas City and Atchison, Kansas. We developed a new website for them based on an artist’s design. While they originally wanted just a new website promoting the stores, we convinced them to include the blog that the owner had been publishing for years. This blog was already a WordPress site, so we upgraded that site, keeping the dozens of blog posts, and based the new design and features on it.


We were brought on site for a contract that involved creating a new website for this company that provides computer networking for corporations. Worked with staff to come up with branding and theming for the website. WordPress was used for the project.
