Lulu is a New York-based cake boutique who, in the words of Peck and Co., the design agency behind the boutique’s new visual identity, craft ‘masterpieces unmatched in flavor’ and are obsessed with detail, artistry and flavour.

Based around a fine line script with large enthusiastic loops and a polished fluidity that neatly walks the line between personal signature and piped icing, contrasting uppercase sans-serif characters and a monochromatic colour palette, Lulu’s identity is a sharp juxtaposition of individuality and creative flourish alongside professional efficiency. While the illustrations and tone of voice (see ‘In Cake We Trust’, ‘Get Your Sugar On’ and ‘Life Is Better With A Cake’) feel a little generic and clunky next to the clear communicative duality and finish of the logotype the the use of unbleached, string-tied boxes, paper, stickers, tape and what looks like a letter-press finish work well to add a small-scale, traditional and custom sensibility to the project that really builds on the craft values of the brand.

Thank you to everyone who has visited BP&O since its beginning in 2011. As many of you know, BP&O has always been a free-to-access design blog that seeks to offer extended opinion on brand identity work. It has sought to be the antithesis of the social media platform that often disentangles form, context and content. Writing articles can take 2-4hrs and are carefully researched.

I am passionate about design writing and believe that spending time to write about work, rather than just posting images, furthers design discourse. If you have enjoyed this article, have been with the site from its early days and would like to help contribute to its future, please consider supporting the site with a small PayPal donation. This will go towards the costs of hosting, CDN (to make the site quick to load) and Mailchimp, and cover some of the time it takes to research, write-up, format and share posts.
