Caffe Umbria’s ideology is to provide its target market with high quality but mid-priced coffee on the go and in bagged blends to make and serve at home.

In the middle of the circular logo is a cartoon of a 'two tailed siren', which is a unique design - this makes the graphic stand out even more. The logo was in the form of a .gif (graphics interchange format) when I downloaded it from the Starbucks website, since the logo needs to be high quality; it's range of uses span from a small sized coffee cup, to huge store signs. In my opinion, the target audience for this graphic is 18 - 40 year olds, since the whole idea of 'coffee on the go' is something which would appeal to working men/women who need to save time. In addition, the logo is not particularly 'child friendly', since many younger children wouldn't be capable of reading the text - comparing the logo to say the 'McDonalds' logo which is much more simplistic and fun (yellow arches on a red background). Furthermore, I think that the use of thin white stripes close to each other to make up the siren's tail could be problematic when printing the image e.g.

Researchers from the Yale Rudd Center for Food Policy and Obesity examined the nutritional quality and advertising of more than 100 brands and nearly 300 varieties of cereals. They found an overall improvement in the nutrition of the cereals in recent years, but the products are still much worse than those sold to adults. In general, they have 56 per cent more sugar, half as much fiber and 50 per cent more sodium. Increasingly, breakfast cereal makers are offering more nutritious low-sugar options. The trick is trying to find them amidst the Cocoa Puffs, Frosted Flakes, Lucky Charms and all the other sugary concoctions on grocery store shelves.
Yogurt in their time was simply made of milk inoculated with a bacterial culture. Food today, for example, has a lot of high-fructose corn syrup as a main ingredient, says Pollan.

The industry doesn’t want you to know the truth about what you’re eating, because if you knew, you might not want to eat it. When you go through the supermarket, there is an illusion of diversity. So much of our industrial food turns out to be rearrangements of corn.
