About

Honduras, right in the heart of Central America, is a mountainous Latin American republic of 8.1 million people. It is working for its national development in various sectors: agricultural production, especially coffee (some of the best in the world) and bananas, the manufacturing and assembly industry, the conservation of its biodiversity and the rapid growth of tourism as a focus of community development.”

Design by

Gerardo Midence (Tegucigalpa, Honduras)

Logo math: Shape of Honduras + Cornucopia from Coat of Arms = Logo.

Opinion

The result of this contest organized by the government of Honduras proves that the end never justifies the means, especially when end is so lame. The concept — see math equation below — is valid and a decent starting point but the toothpaste-slash-swimming-noodle execution of the icon is quite amateurish for a country brand and the typography is absolutely horrendous. That "r" should be outlawed. (For an additional cringe, see this super-sized version of the logo and examine the points where the lines join.) Congratulations, I guess to the winner, but condolences to Honduras — unless the idea was to look like a daytime soap opera TV channel.

Thanks to Brandemia for the tip.
