As a designer, coming up with design ideas is part of my job. And I love conceptual work, don't get me wrong, but I also love when a client brings his/her own concept to the table. Especially for a logo, and especially for a small business owner, the client's input helps brand identity reflect the individual's identity.
Last week I got a pleasant surprise in the form of an email from Nicole with The Buttercup Bakery, LLC. She was looking to rebrand her business; hoping to add a little professionalism and attract a new market. Well. Anyone who knows me knows I am a big fan of bakeries--I mean, cakes, cupcakes, sugar in general... who isn't a fan?! So I was 100% on board with this project.
