Design the Best Bakery Logos With Placeit’s Logo Maker
Most of the modern bakery design ideas used here are taken from the Logo Maker at Placeit, a simple and low-stress tool that allows small businesses to create their own logos quickly and easily. You don't need any special design software like Photoshop and Illustrator. With Placeit, you can design bakery names and logos in minutes, right in your browser.
Components of the Best Bakery Logos
What are the best colours for bakery logos? Before we turn our attention to some bakery logo ideas and designs, let’s define exactly what a logo is and what the key components of logo design are, using cute bakery logo examples from Placeit.
A logo is a symbol that helps identify and promote a business, product, organisation, etc. Logos usually take the form of an abstract or illustrative symbol. In our example here, you can see that the Cassiopeia Coffee shop uses a combination of leaves, beans, and small branches from the coffee plant to indicate that their business is coffee related.
Some businesses use text alone with a distinct font for their logo. But most companies tend to combine a symbol with text, which makes their logo much easier to remember.
The best colours for bakery logos can turn a simple design into a successful logo. Colour affects our emotions and behaviours and plays a critical role in designing a successful logo. There’s a reason fast food giant McDonald's, for example, uses red and yellow in its logo. Red attracts attention and stimulates the appetite, while yellow is associated with happiness and is the most visible colour in daylight. This is why those golden arches are easily spotted from a great distance.
With just three elements to consider, how could you go wrong, right? Well unfortunately, putting these three elements together is a skill that designers train for years to hone. Don't worry—we know you don't have years to spare. You have a business to run. That's where the Placeit Logo Maker comes in.
Placeit provides you with hundreds of cute bakery logo templates that you can customise to create your own unique logo in a matter of minutes. Take a look at the following cafe and bakery logo examples, and you’ll see what I mean.
