New Logo for PCH by MetaDesign
Logo detail with tag line.
Explanation of what PCH does (with the old logo).

The previous logo was like a bad logo joke with the flat globe and knocked-out "P" and was as generic as it gets. The new wordmark isn't perfect but at least offers a taste of what PCH is about and coupled with the "We Make" tagline gives you an indication that this is about assembly and production and industry. After watching the video below you'll see that the new logo fits quite well with what PCH does. As to the wordmark itself, I like the extended structure and rhythm of the three letters. Maybe a tad thicker would have been nice so that the curved notches in the letters were more apparent. The lock-up with the lowercase "we make" tagline feels weak and could have used better contrast instead of everything being light and small.

Your opinion…
