Description: A baking goddess brings a touch of Parisian chic with swirly tresses and cupcakes, cherries and hearts entwined in her gorgeous hair.

Thanks guys!! :-) I am actually planning on using a bigger size of the illustration on the website separate from the logo type ... in a larger size it looks nicely fleshed out :-)

yes picking at nits but...I'd make that apostrophe smaller and tuck it down in a bit more getting the l and s closer or even touching. And then reduce the word spacing a tad. Very cute.

Thanks Logoboom! I tried fiddling with the letters .. the thing is I need the writing by itself and not always with the mark [just like on the blog right now] and in that case, the name nicely spaced looks better than a tighter kerning.

Wow! Stunning- must have taken you awhile. This is one of my favourites! very unique and hits the spot!

Question- If you use it at a small size would you just use the text without the mark, or is it just for your website?

Thanks!

imago-designs : Thanks, yeah it took me a few weeks, working on and off. For now, it is just for the website, product design is intended in the future and the mark and text will most definitely be used separately. The mark and text do work together at very small sizes too, I have checked [for letterheads and stuff .. hence the slightly loose kerning :-)]

I think it's a success if you're pleased with your own branding.. If you're like me it's hard to be satisfied with your own work. Kudos. looks great.

Hey, that's great, really fun, bet you enjoyed doing it while it was coming together! What's the font, out of interest? I'm looking for a good handwritten-style script.

lboi Sep. 29 '09

Thanks guys :) Yeah, it was so much fun, the sketches took me the longest and then deciding a color scheme. The font is Cocktail Shaker :)

I'm getting a weird feeling about this one whenever I see it... it reminds me of a logo someone else did once on LP that was at first praised and then realised a complete rip from istock or something... but that girl in the pic had flowers in her hair if I recall... & I also cant recall how similar this is but it sure reminds me of that whole (unfortunate) incident...

Does anyone know what I'm talking about?

yeah I remember seeing that illustration on Nathan Sarlow's sister's visiting card and asking him about it earlier this year because it was so much like what I had made last year. He was the one who told me about the stock illustration. LOL , the idea for this actually came to me a couple of years ago when I was fooling around with mixing spoons and paper cases and sticking them in my hair purely for a humorous effect for the kids.

Its client work because its not just my money in the GK franchise, I have 2 other partners. Yeah purely coincidental, I have 3 sets of sketches for this, fruits .. vegetables and sweets. The sweets won by common vote. My inspiration for this was Medusa. I was hoping to get a glamorous, mysterious woman with food/sweets in her hair instead of snakes .. very chic and I was happy with what I managed to arrive at. Since doing this one, I have worked on an eco-organic version but that's for a later stage. This is more of a personal, evolving project for me. I also have some sketches with eyes, but they just killed the whole pretty feel of it.

Good graphic. Bad logo.
Logo should be legible on the tiniest scale without losing important details.
Logo should be look "OK" on gray-scale and pure B/W.

Just my two cents

eziemac Sep. 30 '09

I have to disagree with shin. Those characteristics should be applied if the logo will be used in those circumstances, however this logo was made personally for the designer, Lboi, and who knows better what the logo will be used for than the designer?

My assumption is that this logo will mainly/only be used for the web and will not be used any smaller than this and for those reasons i think that this works as a good logo.
