My original idea for the design was a big, bold B with a bite taken out of the top left corner, and then a smaller "ite" (to emphasize the bite-sized theme). I am undecided about adding "Vegan Bakery" to the logo, or just sticking with Bite. Both options would be greatly appreciated!
I want it to be cool and edgy, or even a little bit quirky (maybe a chalkboard or cardboard sort of thing). It is important to me that it's on the trendy side - I want people to really buy into the vibe of the company and change their opinions about veganism being too "hippy-ish."
I don't like cutesy or girly, as many bakeries tend to go. Brown and pink seem to be popular colors, but unless it's done in an original way, I'd rather stay away from that (even though there must be a reason so many bakeries go with that).
Our slogan is "Changing the world one (vegan) bite at a time" (with the word vegan above or below with an arrow ^). If there is an amazing way to have it with the logo, go for it! But if not, the name is really the most important thing.
I really want the focus to be on the fact that everything is bite-size. I don't want the emphasis to be on the fact that it's earth or health-conscious. I want the only clue that it's vegan to be the word vegan, if you choose to add that. So I'd like to stay away from anything leaf/plant/vegetable related.
We also don't just make cupcakes, so unless a cupcake is used in a subtle way, I don't want it to look just like a cupcake company.
I included some examples of logos I just threw together on photoshop. They aren't quite right, but if someone can make one of them amazing, that could be good :-) I also included an image of a cupcake company's packaging whose vibe I really like in case that helps too! What I like about them is the sketchy/chalkboard-ish type words/pictures they use.
Thanks so much in advance. I can't wait to work with all of you!
