I dont want to sound mean and please do not take my opinion as an insult. I think the graphic looks like a cheap soft serve ice cream cone. By looking at your computer layout for your new shop, which looks great by the way, I would think something more upscale would have been better. The color and the text font look good but I think the rest is lacking IMO. Is your main business going to be ice cream? Just my thoughts.

It is good to hear your opinion. I don't take it personally. I had originally wanted a graphic that was more abstract so that it referenced both the baked goods and the gelato. The graphic artist sent this over, but there is one more revision, so I'll mention the "cone" look.

This is just my honest opinion..so hear me out icon_smile.gif

Obviously I don't know you and we have never met..so I'm going solely based on what I have seen on here in pictures and content of your posts. (This may be way off in some psychological corner-but this is jsut the way I see it)

From what I can tell, you are a very strong person who has a great creative talent, strong opinions regarding your talent, incredible work ethic and a very mature demeanor.

With that said, your logo is nice...but lacks that "strong" quality that I would expect. I mean I understand the gelato aspect of it..I just think its a little "soft" for someone with such strong convictions regarding her business. With that said, I love the color...maybe just a logo with some more defined lines and stronger shapes, to kind of put your foot out there and say "you NEED to come in here, because I know what I'm doing and I'm good at it and dammit everything in here is awesome! icon_smile.gif"
(that may be a little over the top...but thats what I think icon_smile.gif)


I mean this with all the best intentions..and I wish you the best of luck icon_smile.gif

lol...my best friend is a psych major...its rubbing off...can you tell? icon_smile.gif

It's cute, but being a graphic designer that works at an advertising agency, I do this every single day, and in my opinion, I don't feel that it is a 'strong' logo. It needs to be more isolated; not just a white font on a blue background, because any business collateral that you have in the future should be consistent with the logo, so in that case everything you have would have to be blue with white text. And you definetly want to keep things consistent (i.e.: business cards, fliers, magazine/newspaper ads) because that's how people grow to identify you. Consistency really does have a lot to do with identity - there are people who have all their business collateral designed by the agency I work for, and then someone offers them a 'cheaper' media buy in a magazine, and they take it - and honestly, people do not recognize the ads, and half of the readers bypass the ad. So if you are going to have a solid block of blue for the background, be sure to be consistent with that.

I would recommend branding your company with an iconic logo - perhaps tightening up the icecream cone to be more of a logo, and look less clip art-ish.

I'm totally not trying to be a jerk, so I apologize if it seems that way. I just have a lot of experience with this stuff under my belt, and am only trying to help.

Sorry kat,
I'm not lovin' the graphic either. I agree with chqtpi and CakeMasterG. Based on the renderings of your shop, I'm hoping for something stronger, snappier and upscale. I do like the color, though! icon_biggrin.gif

Best,
Lisa

My first impression was that it was off-center "Sugarland" looks off-center because it's missing the line down on the 'd'. So you have the curly-cue from the S, but nothing to balance it out on the right-hand side. So you see more blue on the right than the left. The graphic does tend to look more like an ice cream cone, so I don't know if that could be revised a bit.

I really like the 'because life is sweet' line and that it's in lower case. And it's a great name for a store. Good luck with everything.

Hmmm.. I can see what everyone is talking about. What about making it in all caps? Or making it eliptical rather than square.. that will help with the disproportion on either side. I'd be interested in seeing your original idea too. Remember.. this is YOUR image.. and the image your customers will associate with YOU.. don't settle if it's not what you want. I am bored so I was fooling around a little.. check this out. Obviously I don't have your image so I stuck a generic clipart image in there.. I tried to get close to your original font.. but I kow it's not exact.. and I know it's not perfect, but Paint doesn't give you much for options.. icon_wink.gif

I really like the simplicity of the design. They tend to be more eye catching to me personally, especially with the nice color and font.


First impression I think of those shops you see in touristy spots that sell ice cream, fudge, taffy, and caramel popcorn. It's definitely the wrong impression, but I only get ice cream cone from the logo and adding in the name "Sugarland" that is what comes to mind honestly.

With all the spectacular dessert and other wonderful offerings I think there must be a better way to represent that than an ice cream cone.
