HISTORY


OUR STORY Ice cream was once served as a decadent treat for the aristocratic society. The creation of ice cream was more of a culinary art form, where it was beautifully presented and slowly enjoyed. However today, ice cream is sold by the gallon at the supermarket, or by a man in a small truck that played distorted nursery music. Ice cream has lost its sophistication. Yearning for that lost experience, we decided to create a regal place where customers can sit and enjoy a taste of high society, a place where ice cream is served and presented with sophistication and elegance. Ooh La Crème was born.

OUR NAME OOH LA LA + CRÈME DE LA CRÈME The name derived from the combination of the French term crème de la crème, the very best, and ooh la la, an expression of satisfaction. Ooh La Crème describes the euphoric & delightful sensation of biting into our finest quality ice cream.

WHO IS OOH LA CRÈME? We are more than an ice cream shop. We provide our customers with products and services that blend art with French culinary experience. We established ourselves as a dessert destination through the artistic and careful crafting of our ice cream. Ooh La Crème is an ice cream experience worth bragging about.

BRAND LOGO Sources of inspiration for the brand logo came from French hand lettering, ornamentation, and flourishes. We wanted the brand to have a modern and sophisticated look through the use of typography. By focusing on the custom hand-lettered logotype, we were able to avoid running into the cliché imagery of the typical ice cream brands while still elevating the value of Ooh La Crème.

Didot Italic is used for body copy to compliment Avenir Next because of its elegant and classic look.
