    This is a continuation of my thread "What font pops in your head...". I think I have the font - now I could use some advice. The first one is the new layout. It's not finished but I don't know where to go from here. The second one is the original layout but the scale of the sign changed and I couldn't use the same layout. I'm afraid she is going to insist on the girl image, unless I show her something really cool instead.

    Any thoughts?

    I like the one on the left...but add the muffin from the one on the right or something like that. :) Colours are nice together.

    Do they specialize in anything ...ie; Cupcakes, muffins, doughnuts??

    Honestly I kind of like the old one better.
    Does Doughlicious have to be broken up?
    Maybe try desserts in a plain all-caps font.
    Love....Jill

    actually...taking a second look...I prefer the font used in the one on the right. :)

    I like it, too, but the sign went from a 2'x8' to a 3'x8' and I can't stretch it that much and keep it the same. She is also stuck on the girl, but maybe if I can come up with something better she'll go for it.

    At first, I had the one on the right with Dough on 1 side and Licious on the other with an oval in the middle and a cupcake. She wanted a "person smelling a cupcake and smiling because maybe it smells good". I couldn't believe I found an image close to that.

    So, if the consensus is the one on the right is better, how can I keep that look and increase the height by 50%?

    technically it would be BATTER-LICIOUS if you are selling cupcakes! LOL!

    I think the bold script reads much better, but you have too much script.
    I like the girl too. After posting the link to Nicks Fonts yesterday I couldn't
    resist getting one of his fonts... this one is called Didgeree Doodle.
    I chopped your layout down to 3x8 so "desserts is trimmed off, but you get
    the idea.

    Cut the girls head off up to her ear. It's a low contrast area anyway.

    Here's the final one she decided to go with. Thanks for all the responses!
