I have been baking and designing custom cakes since graduating college. In the past 6 months, I bought out a local bakery that has a store front (located in a college town). With this, I am looking to give my new bakery a trendy alternative style... Think Tattoo, tiered cake, alternative rock, Ed Hardy art and cupcakes... I am planning to expand my company to other areas here shortly and looking for something that is eye catching and remember able.. Something that people would want to come to our location to purchase a shirt with it on, or purchase apparel online from our website with this logo... My cakes are known for being the best tasting around... and we have won multiple local awards for the "Best Cakes"!
College Students (my display cases stays full of Sweets for them to come in to buy... Especially cupcakes!) and High Income Families (my custom cakes are not cheap...) But remember, I have parent's of the brides that I visit with during wedding cake consultation, so can't be to grungy... I am trying for a style that shows we are creative and staying with the latest trends in the cake decorating industry... Still, I like my bakery to be relaxing and a place for people to come in and have a seat and enjoy the peaceful atmosphere.
Prefer the logo to be one color, but the ability to be multi color when used in different marketing material. Incorporate tiered cake, cupcake, tattoo with Ed Hardy style... name of Business is "Cake Junkie"... Make the font unique and custom... Not looking for a bubbly feel, but more trendy, alternative feel... But still simple...
Attached is something we were working on that was going in the right direction, but I think its just not there... To busy and to dimensional... And I don't care for name in the logo... Probably best to have the name under logo if providing a logo with that style... More unique font... You can use this example for reference, but create your own style... Or even show me some different versions that you think would fit better...
I am planning to get this LOGO as a tattoo when finalized... Know you are creating a logo that will be a household name soon enough!
Here are a couple links to example websites that we plan to reference when developing the new bakery's website:
Be creative and make it tough on me to decide between all the awesome logos!
