Trying out an idea for a logo for the bakery I work for. Decided bread was the perfect stamp.

Kind of looks like a potato.

Maybe try like a dark or golden brown color instead of black since its bread

Yeah it kind of looks like a diseased lung

That's not bread, that is clearly a mother beating a father while a brother is dancing with the dog one never got.

Or a short & wide turd

I like the concept, but I think it could potentially leave too much to the imagination. I mean, I can totally tell it's a print of a slice of bread, but then again I can also see a landscape shot of Mars.

No no, it's two bears high fiving each other.

That's what I call "the sideways coke can", takes a lot of time and patience. When its just starting to peer you push and push, then push and push a bit more but as soon as you relax after all that effort it just sneaks back in the butt. After having this constant battle the can gives in and falls. Then I find the splash back makes a direct hit on your ring, you have to have a minute to recover you fell like you've just summited a peak or won a race.

I was going to go with cancerous kidney, but lung works pretty well too.

As someone in graphic design I'd say no. It's creative yes, but I'm afraid it just doesn't work.

Except that without the bread in the photo... the 'stamp' doesn't look like bread.

I think with a bit of tooling and sort of emphasizing the crust, it might be better. But hopefully it'll turn some heads but that's logos. Everyone sees something different or even misses things!

I like where it says "Bakery." That helps me.

I actually think that's very smart and creative! I do truly like it.

As a graphic designer I think that it is a strong logo. It doesn't need to read as bread. Logos are generally best when they're not actually the product being sold. (Example: Nike doesn't use a shoe as their logo, they use the swoosh [derived from the wing of Nike, a god].) This bread logo shows great texture that most commonly used logos do not have. I think it brings a lot of humanistic qualities to the logo and company. Makes a statement that it's not factory-robot-automated Wonderbread and that it's fresh bread made with love and the touch of human hands. Great work, OP!

I like your childhood better.

Also, Vector the image and take the negative of the piece of bread, so it swaps the white and black.

I don't think this is very effective as a logo. It's nice as a branding on a package perhaps, but when designing a logo, scaling and legibility have to come into consideration.

Not to be pedantic at all, just speaking from experience.

I'm just going to chime in with everyone else here...

Interesting idea, but it doesn't really work. Looks like a potato, or a rock, or whatever. No one is going to look at it (without a slice of bread in the picture like you've done here) and say, "ohhh it's a slice of bread!"

A big part of the problem is that you've basically created the NEGATIVE image of a slice of bread. Look at the actual piece in the picture you posted. The bread is white (ish), and the wholes are black (ish). On your stamp, it's the opposite.

Unfortunately, there's no way around this unless you used light ink (usually pigment ink) on a dark medium.

Anyway, nice try, but I honestly think you should move on to a different idea.

I think for a logo to be truly successful the vast majority of people should see the same thing

GENUIS! As a fellow baker I think the imprints of a croissant after it's baked on parchment looks amazing as well. Good luck with the biz, OP!

Well I'm sure he's not planning on serving anyone the bread he used as stamps.

Wow that was a scarily accurate account!

Yeah I think you're on to it, it's close to happening.

Ye. Without a piece of sliced bread next to it i'm not sure it would be clear. Its like a rorschach test.

I see an asteroid

Funny. I just see the Batman....allll the time.

I thought potato. But is no potato.

"Your logo looks like a sideways vagina. And I find that racist."

scarily

scarily - adv. 1845, "timidly;" 1967, "unnervingly,"

Huh. It is a word.

edit - I genuinely didn't know! Your downvotes merely fuel my linguistic curiosities!

Looks like lung cancer to me.

The issue is it is a dark black scan so all you see is texture. It leaves a lot to the imagination. It looks like a potato to me.

Now it REALLY looks like a potato!

I'm too embarrassed to say what it looks like..

So did uncle Ricky.

You sir must work in advertising. Turd Asteroid really conjurers an image for me.

I can actually make out what you see, that is awesome.

I have to seriously question your credentials as a graphic designer if you think a turd asteroid is a good representation for a bakery. Grains, ovens, an apron, even mill stones would be more appetizing representations than a potato rock.

As someone in the advertising business, I applaud your creativity.

You're kidding right? As a branding agency owner for 22 years, I have to be honest. This logo is not good. Not good at all.

I agree, you cannot tell that it is bread.
