I'm designing a logo for my small business, Taiyaki studio that will create and sell stickers and apparel - a small Japanese anime inspired company where minimal, cool and modern designs are of elevated importance.
Background for the name: The logo takes inspiration from a Taiyaki which is a popular Japanese desert and happens to be my favourite. I’ve always loved Japanese culture and watched a lot of anime so being able to include some part of that in a logo is my main goal.
The logo will go on a range of sizes: from small scale, like social media profile pictures, to business cards, to logos embroidered on sleeves, to digital, to a sticker.
Features in order of importance:
- Minimal and cool designs
- Modern - yes, but not too out there
- Japanese - just the subject matter taking inspiration from Japan, but not in your face
Is this logo too "busy"? How can it be improved?
Are the lines in this logo too thin? The black bordering line of the fish slices need to be there?
I’m not too sure on what font would work best with this style of logo. I was thinking something thin and sleek. Any suggestions?
I am not a professional designer. And I only do this for fun, but I want to get your opinions on it.
