For the example logos - here are some thoughts to go along with those..
Woman -Some e-cards – the caricatures remind you of a typical 60’s family. This is the feel we are going for but I prefer the characters to be more cartoonish and simpler (less lines in the drawings but more color)
“Cake Baby” logo – this is more the feel – the vibe should be a 60’s mom but I think a mom with more modern outfit on and apron on would be better for our target audience.
Trailer “Eat” – I like the feel of this drawing – it’s simple but still kind of cartoon-ish.
Food Diagram – Just some examples of how food is drawn – The woman could be holding a cupcake or frosting a cake in our logo. Or maybe she’s got a mixing bowl.
"Lynnie" - this is my mom - just so you can see what she looks like.
I want the design to be simple and clean – I’d like the logo to have a woman in it – who resembles Lynnie – doing something resembling baking in the kitchen – whether that’s frosting a cake, mixing some batter. “Lynnie’s” is named after my mom. I ‘d love the woman in the photo to slightly resemble her, even if that just means light brown hair and blue eyes. I’m not married to that idea though so if you are inspired by something else, I’m open I’d love it to feel more natural than maybe your typical cupcake designs (frilly, pink, ruffles, fancy, ultra-feminine – I don’t want to be at that extreme). My packaging will be eco-friendly and green so I want to appeal to that crowd. My frosting is all natural, organic, and local – and the frosting should taste and look like it was made in “Lynnie’s” kitchen so that it tastes like local, homemade goodness.
Here is a website with a designer that I like.
