Yumptious Logos for Cupcake Maker

Thursday, March 1st, 2012

The word Yumptious is derived from Yummy and Scrumptious, which nicely describes their cupcakes. Asked to design their new logo I finally had the chance to use a new circus-inspired font, with the hilarious name Bearded Lady, shown on the top row. It was also a chance to use the more obscure fonts I have in my ever-increasing collection of typefaces.

I liked the idea of emphasising the join between the two words, so a lot of the logos feature various devices from stars to heraldic shields featuring cupcakes. Another thought was to incorporate a subtitle that explains the word, so I used the wording Yummy & Scrumptious to sit alongside some of the designs.

The client narrowed down the choice to about 10 logos, from these I chose the one that I felt was the strongest and incorporating the subtitle. The chosen one is shown middle row, fourth up from the bottom.
