*This Brand x Web Design for Death by dessert is a fictitious company for my portfolio.

Project Summary

Colors found in food were incorporated into the Death by dessert brand. The main colors are derived from chocolate, coffee, and fruits. Even though some of these colors can be construed as dark and sinister (the red created a murderous gingerbread face at one point when I was experimenting with the submark), the overall brand elements help create a fun theme.

A handwritten font was chosen to depict a down to earth brand, and the gingerbread man face pattern depicts a fun, ageless element without being too cutesy. Adding doodles to the cafe elements create a cafe with a personality, as opposed to some cafes that emit more of a business atmosphere.

Overall, the Death by dessert brand still has a bright, relaxed, and fun atmosphere that can attract families, teens, and young adults.
