To give us an idea of the overall feeling of your brand, let us know which styles you lean towards
I am looking for something pretty stylized, simple, flat and modern. Something that makes you think "ice cream" the instant you look at it, but without being silly or childlike.
The place is a cafe with espresso and crepes as well, so the logo should feel like a cafe as well but the symbology should be ice cream, not coffee. (They can find out about the coffee etc. when they come inside the cafe.)
The logo is going to be painted on the outside of the building, and the building color is going to be the red-orange I mentioned above, so at least one variation will have to be able to show up on that wall. So I would like one white version on the red/orange background so I can see what that will look like. And then the regular version on white bg would focus on the cool colors (purple, light gray) with a splash of the red/orange and/or chartreuse. Something called "Coolside" has to look and feel COOL, not warm or hot.
