Our new logo is eye-catching, modern, and takes full advantage of our product’s implied motion of handwriting. Optical kerning gives clear legibility to “Hub” while the standalone “H” also provides versatility. A lightweight font and delineated placement in relation to other content make the logo instantly recognizable.
Our product is the connection from human thought to communication. By using cursive animation we reinforce our products value and relevance in a stylish and modern way.
