Nice. The thick all-caps is reminiscent of a finish line banner for a race as well. Very subtle.

Finnish flag in the H is also a last creative flourish of the paintbrush when everything else is done. I like it.

nice looking logo. more than interesting decision with FIN flag usage.

Oct 28, 2009 at 9:10 pm

I agree nice typography. The logo works well and the unique ‘H’ will make the brand recognisable.

Oct 28, 2009 at 9:56 pm

Very nice and subtle combo with the flag!

Oct 28, 2009 at 10:08 pm

Well done. Simple and effective! Great work on the H.

Fantastic! Love the H … the longer I look at the more I see the waving flag.
Great job.

if you don’t know how the flag looks…hard to get it

Oct 29, 2009 at 6:55 am

Nice… But this little cut in H is unneeded…

I got it instantly, but for someone who might not be as familiar with national flags, the connection might not be made. I think that the risk is worth the reward in this case, great job, its perfect.

Also, its good to see a great logo on here again, there hasn’t been a logo really deserving since Figure 9.

Oct 29, 2009 at 9:42 am

Well done. :)

@SimplyForDesign: I disagree, without the break in the H, you lose emphasis on the Finnish flag – there would be no blue cross.

Oct 29, 2009 at 8:24 pm

I agree, the emphasis would be lost without the cut in the H, but this is still subtle enough. The best logos are usually the ones that aren’t blindingly obvious!

Oct 29, 2009 at 8:26 pm

Simple, clean, effective and smart. I think the flag in the H is really intelligent design.

Oct 29, 2009 at 8:30 pm

Genius, simplicity is the key in this logo, great work

Like the simplicity and it has movement.

Oct 30, 2009 at 3:04 am

I like the concept and fluidity

Oct 30, 2009 at 3:24 am

It really works!!

Nice design, very effective!

Oct 30, 2009 at 3:28 am

I think this concept is very clever. The simplicity of the brand is thought provoking making it memorable.
Well done – deserved logo of the day.

Oct 30, 2009 at 10:42 am

@Chris Siegle but why the break is this width not another? I mean there isn’t anything relevant to it in whole Design… And it is do thin that it could dissapear when you m?k? the logo smaller… But i still think that it is very good design

@daniel – well, people just should know how flags look like :)

Design deserves a lot of good words. Nice work!

Neat. simple. Great typography with flag device weaved in effortlessly.

This logo sums up how logos should be, it works so well. It reminds me of the FedEx logo, creatively it has the same kind of effect in as much as you find a clever trick at the end. In this case its the national flag. Excellent. The fact that the name is used as the description of the product benefit is also amazingly clever. Seriously well done.

Don’t know about finnish, this looks like the start of something that will drive the brand. Excellent visual recall, totally on the money. Love the blue. Another big creation from big cat.

Nice logo :) Simple, and effective!

Oct 31, 2009 at 3:16 am

Clean and simple logo….those are always the best.
