Figured I'd ask here since you're all pro's with this kind of stuff. I'm looking to name my business and I've asked friends and family and narrowed my choices down to a few. I wanted to anonamously ask here what the first things that pop into your head hearing the names and seeing the logos (really shoddily made just as a demonstration, these wont be the actual logo, I'll do some variations off these ones).
So I'm just looking for what your initial reactions would be, what you think my business would do/provide just by looking at the name and logo, no backstory or anything. It's really important that my name conveys easily what type of business I am as well as sounding nice/welcoming and having a bold and colourful look to attract attention.
Chloe's Custom Cakes (My name is Chloe by the way)
The Purple Spatula (Cakery) or Chloe's Purple Spatula
Chloe's Cake Cafe
So take a look and have a think first, then scroll down to hear what my business is actually going to be, and see then which idea best suits the business. If you could write in the comments what you first thought of when you looked at each of those ideas first that would be great :) I've been struggling over a name for some time now, nothing seems to grab my attention.
So my business is basically going to be that I want to run my own shop, selling cupcakes/cakepops/slices of cake etc behind a counter and then have an open plan seating area for parents and their kids or just generally any customers to sit down and eat their goods, have a rest or a chat with friends and family. The idea is to have a nice warm environment where people can relax and eat cake. But on top of this I do also want to make custom cakes for birthdays/baby showers/holidays/weddings etc. Obviously at the moment I'll be selling cupcakes/cakepops etc to customers from my own home until I can get the money to open said shop so I'm a little hesitant about the last idea and logo since most of my advertising will start on a website + social networking. What do you all think? Or do you have any different ideas not mentioned here? I wanted to include my name in the business name somewhere but it's not a necessity if the right name really grabs my attention. My original idea was Chloe's Little Bakery since CLB are my initials. But I think bakery implies that I'd bake and sell bread/pastries etc which is not really something I'm interested in.
Thanks for reading this far, sorry it's a long post but I gratiously accept any ideas or help from all of you.
Just a disclaimer. Again the logos, artwork/font etc is subject to massive change and I obviously won't be using anything that's not subject to use for commercial purposes.
