Use a Playful Font
Ice cream is all about enjoyment - savoring the rich flavor of the ice cream and munching slowly on the cone while walking in a park or enjoying people watching on the shop's street corner. The brand of an ice cream shop is no different. Entertainment and fun are the names of the game. Your ice cream shop works to cultivate a welcoming and pleasant atmosphere. You can reflect this in your font choice. Focus on playful, quirky fonts that showcase the personality of your shop. You can focus on sans serif fonts (ones without the "serifs" or the little lines extending out on the letters), choosing fonts with rounded letters appearing to be handwritten. Serif fonts tend to be more traditional and professional (which is one reason why resumes and newspapers use them), so go on the other end of the spectrum with sans serif fonts to help your ice cream shop be more personable.
Use Ice Cream Symbols
When you see an image of an ice cream cone, you tend to suddenly really want an ice cream cone. It's the power of suggestion (which helps make food advertising so effective). Consider placing an ice cream cone image into your logo design. Seeing the smooth ice cream and the crunchy cone can help make a viewer start to want an ice cream cone. With one glance at your logo, they may be sold and come in for a scoop. Using ice cream symbols also helps brand your shop as an ice cream shop if the name itself does not make it clear. With the above designs, a viewer would not necessarily equate a company named "The Yum Yum Shop" or "Nectar" with ice cream. By using an image of an ice cream cone, you help people instantly know what you sell.
