    Want some ideas for a good colour to use on our logo for a bakery. I've heard some colours do not go well when advertising food as subconsciously it puts people off eating.

    Best thing to do this is search for existing bakery logos. But do not copy them, just get an idea from their designs.
    As far as I see from the bakeries around us, most colors used are brown, yellow, red and white.
    Here are a few samples from Google Search: http://bit.ly/bkHBpI and http://bit.ly/coRuNE

    Hope that helps.

    Agree with GekiDen..
    See some existing bakery brand logos. You can take some colors, fonts and image inspirations from those logos. Good luck.

    I personally think pink and yellow/gold are a good colour scheme.

    Gold because of its link with honey and syrup, pink because it is a pleasant and positive colour. However that is my take as a normal consumer, but as per statistics I probably represent a certain percentage of the market.

    Ok, so a couple of days ago I asked which colours were in harmony/compliment Red (my favourite colour) for my business logo. So I have a question for you guys...

    After messing with a colour schemer this two I liked the best. The only thing is that the red/blue kinda looks like the US flag ;x What do you guys think, any other advice is welcome.

    Welcome to Business Advice Forum goldie! I'd suggest soft pastel colours with perhaps some orange. Orange is a very appetising colour and could work very well for a bakery logo. Other colours that might work are burgundy red or soft browns.

    wringle if you would like advice for your own logo please start a new thread with your questions and we would be delighted to help you.
