Oven Lovin’ Bakery
This project is a visual brand identity done for a fictitious bakery. This bakery is centered on the idea of feeling at home. I used the metaphor, “Warmth from Home” to symbolized the warmth that a bakery might use to sell its products. This became my inspiration for the typeface that I used, and how I designed the brand Identity. Using metaphor is a great way to enhance a story behind a brand.
My research consisted of me looking at different bakery branding that already exists. One of the bakery brandings that I looked at was Hostess and I took note of how they did their packaging and how their logo was designed. Researching this helped me understand how important a brand identity
is and how a metaphor like “The Warmth
from Home” can enhance a brand’s story and message.
My main inspiration for the Oven Lovin’ branding came from the feeling I feel whenever I am home. This inspiration would inspire how I treated the typeface and the slogan. I choose a typeface that was handwritten to give a more personal look.
The name of the typeface I used is called Grandma, it had a heartwarming feeling.
This was a strong enforcer to the Oven Lovin’ brand and the message I wanted to convey.
During my process, I looked at different color schemes that I could use for the bakery brand colors. My first initial thought was to use warm colors to enhance the warm feeling. Then I thought of adding some cool colors to compliment the warm colors I already had.
I also thought about how I wanted to rearrange graphics on the business cards.
In the end, I came up with four different versions that would work well. I decided to
go with warm colors, but have cool colors as secondary colors.
