I have been using a premade logo on vistaprint for my business. I am finally expanding my business and need a great custom logo to use. I was wondering if anyone had any recommendations on a website they have used and had great success. Also wanted to see if anyone had any great for a design for my business name. The name is Iced and Sliced. Slogan is "where cake meets art". I am having a bit of a creative block. I sell custom decorated cakes and will be having a cupcakes shop. I want people to know I sell cupcakes but also make decorative cakes as well. I was thinking a three tier cake with a slice of cake taken out and maybe have a pastry bag coming off the name somehow. Not sure how it would turn out. Thanks
I don't have any experience with websites since I did my own logo, but I do have some design tips!
Think simple and concise. I wouldn't do more than one graphic element, such as the cake AND a pastry bag - pick one or the other. I'd almost steer clear of a pastry bag since most people outside the decorating biz have no idea what that is - they just know the cake looks good at the end - they don't care how you got there :)
What do you want your logo to convey? For example, bright colors are fun and could mean kids birthday cakes, pastel colors are pretty and light and could tell people you're a sophisticated bakery. Do you want it to be modern, classic, trendy, etc.
You could look on Craigslist to see if any graphic design students are looking for work. I'd also be happy to speak with you about possibly doing one. Feel free to send me a message.
I have messaged you. :) Thanks for your advice
