luxury, creative, classy I like the way that pink, black & white play off of each other. As you can see in the picture I uploaded. I want the logo to feel like it is from the era of the picture. Black and white stripes, pink & white stripes. Black & white with splashes of pink. These are the looks, or the feeling of the boutique, I envision (however, the logo does not have to incorporate stripes.)
I want it to have a feel of a modern soda / ice cream shoppe. It is a "boutique" style dessert shop - NOT a bakery, so it needs to have that bit of whimsy and femininity to it. IF it has an icon of a cake truffle (please look up "cake ball" if you are unsure as to what this is) or a cupcake, I would prefer it to be a bit more abstract.
The logo does not HAVE to include an icon. I am very fond of creative typography as well. Please see the Pretty Girl logo I have uploaded for an example. If something very creative with typography could be done, I am ok with forgoing an icon.
This is a woman owned business and it needs reflect femininity. Think Victoria's Secret beauty "Bombshell" and "Sexy little things" collections (Please look these up to see what I mean.)
