Neat! The “&” is eating a chocolate (dot), right?

I know Japanese design is completely different to Western design… even so, this is a big no from me.

Not inspiring, not creative, not appealing.

I have to agree. A little uninspiring. Sweets should be colourful! It would have been nice to see some traditional type forms combined with some high colour. The & eating the chocolate thing is lost without an explanation, which wouldn’t be such a problem if there were other clues and feelings in there. As is stands it fails to be sweet.

I think the idea is probably the best part of the logo. I mean, I got that the ampersand was a person with a piece of chocolate, and I think it’s an idea that can be used effectively enough, and possibly bring a bit of personality to the logo. But I think there probably wasn’t enough time spent exploring the options. I agree with Jim that something more colorful could be nice. Also, it seems a bit stiff for “sweets”, especially since the idea seems to imply a bit of a sense of humor. Also, can I ask, why that particular ampersand? There are so many different types of ampersands out there with so many different types of personalities. I feel like there have countless ampersands out there that would lend themselves better to this project.

My choice seems indifferent. But I really liked it, its simplicity and the components demonstrated.

massimo, yes, this logo is a metaphor of woman eating a chocolate!

Oscar, Adamo, Sjimone and jim, you all made me realize this logo has a lack of inspirations. I will re-design it soon. Thank you for the straight review!

Chris, the ampersand is really important to us, so thank you for pointing this out. The current ampersand is a metaphor of a high-sensitive lady (age 30+), because our main target are them. Our website gathers information about desserts, fashion, travel etc., which our target prefers.

I liked the idea, but I thought it was a restaurant logo. I saw a waiter holding something(in this case, the chocolate) and I read only “Sweets” instead of “And Sweets”.
