When it comes to interior design, visuals are everything. While your store may be well-thought and functional, your customers will be awed by what they see. A well-chosen palette and some bold wall graphics can go a long way in winning their hearts. But what about other visual elements of design or marketing that are less impressive, but necessary? Below, we put together a few types of dessert shop graphics that you should incorporate in your branding package.

Before we dive in, however, remember that your brand is your image to the world, and that all your graphics have to be consistent with it. Your graphic elements should not be disjointed, accidental or out of place when it comes to a cohesive brand image. They all need to flow together, from color and style to the vibe and atmosphere they are trying to create.

Logo and business or loyalty cards

A logo concentrates in one single image everything your business is about, from values to brand personality. It helps your customers differentiate you from your competitors, quickly identify your business, and creates a sense of trust and credibility.

A great logo should be memorable and recognizable, and should evoke an emotional response from customers. Is your intention to make your dessert shop a meeting place where people can create great memories over a delicious dessert? Capture that in your logo! Are you all about natural ingredients? Make it perfectly clear in its design.

A logo should also be simple and timeless, so that it will remain relevant for years to come. Its style should be the same as that of your shop, whether that means elegant, minimalist or rad.

On the other hand, your business and loyalty cards are your insurance that your customers won’t forget about you, and that they have another reason to come back. Your cards should bear your logo as the prominent element on the front and can be used as a background on the back of the card. Their style should be consistent with the vibes of the logo and the overall brand. For example, if you take pride in your fruity flavors, these could be captured in their color palette. If your dessert shop is traditional and classy, an elegant look and classic fonts is what they need.

Images of your desserts and a tagline can open appetites and make your customers act upon them.

Seasonal graphics

As a business owner, it’s a good idea to use every opportunity to bring some extra joy into your customers’ lives. One of the simplest way to do it is by using seasonal decor and graphics. Whether it’s the seasonal holidays or just the change of the seasons, visual reminders show your customers that you care about every little detail, and that your store is a place of joy and celebration.
