BlueBird Cakery Logo
I recently had the pleasure of working with a lady from my hometown. Jennie Brevitz started up a Cake Business on the side called BlueBird Cakery. She’s made cakes for birthdays, special events, wedding rehearsals, and many other events.
Jennie contacted me on my Facebook page Design Avenue asking me to create her a logo since she is wanting to begin working more with the small business in April and she needed a face for the company. She showed me the image that she had now, but informed me she was willing to go in a new direction as well.
To start off, I began drawing different logos that I thought would fit her business. With the first logo, I wanted to stick with a silhouette of a bird and incorporate the type into the illustration. The final outcome ended up being this…
For the next logo, I wanted to go with more of a fun, modern look. I mostly wanted to do this because I was in love with the font, which by the way is Eight One. I created a more simple bird, but had a hard time when it came to placing the text on, within, around the bird. In the end, I went with this look.
This next logo I created ended up being my least favorite. I wanted to try and create the branch-bird like look that Jennie had sent me and that she was currently using for her Facebook photograph. I still liked the outcome, but I liked the other logos that I had created better. But I’ll still let you have a look at the logo…
The final logo I drew was the one I had been thinking about the entire time I was designing. I wanted to create a cake, but also include a bird somewhere in the design. The font worked beautifully with the cake and bird. It’s a rather simple design, but I had the most reaction from this logo when I created it. Here you go…
In the end, Jennie’s favorite was the fourth logo I had made, but she wasn’t quite satisfied. So she asked me to create something with a vintage feel to it. After research on vintage logos, I found a font I adored (and thought she would too) and created a look that looked more vintage than the other designs I had made. I also changed the blue to a popular baby blue that is used quite a bit in vintage looks. Jennie ended up choosing this logo for her small business, and I’d have to say she made a great choice!
So drum roll please . . .
I had a lot of fun working on these logos and Jennie was pleased with the outcome of the logo.
