The logo should have a retro, 1960s, hand-drawn sort of bohemian look and feel. I like the "Life is Good" style and also the style of the images from "Rudi's Bakery" (although I am open to other styles ie., your own uniqueness and signature style).
It should be readable, fun, captivating! Perhaps a cool dog giving a peace sign could be created. Maybe a hippie chef dog giving a peace sign in one hand and a rolling pin in the other?. A cat wearing go go boots? The logo will be used on product packaging, t-shirts, banners and even painted on the side of a vw bus!
Some feedback I received from the current submitted logos was that the audience does not know what the business is until they read the "The Hip and Healthy Bakery" part. Since the logo is for a healthy pet bakery, if a hippie, pet and bakery (and even healthy) theme could be all portrayed through the logo, that would be ideal! The objective is that the logo portray the essence of the business. Since the name of the bakery is "Hippie Hounds", the logo should immediate reflect that the business is a hippie pet bakery.
I really want the look of something more hand drawn and less cartoon-like. Imagine this logo being hand painted on the side of a vw bus! If you google "hand painted vw bus" you should get a since of that bohemian style of simple drawings, flowers etc.
I am so impressed with the submissions and all of the creativity. I am grateful for all of your hard work!
Thank you so much!
