Description: We have a soap project in school. So I created this logo for my project. It consists the letters of "h" and "m". This two letter makes a hand in negative space. There can be changes in colors.

Ummm....sooo....I'm going to go ahead and state the obvious. Hand mate implies that you're in a relationship with your hand (i.e. playing %22whack attack%22) Then you go and use that tagline and wow. Lots of long showers and a hefty water bill. I would consider changing the name at least if you can. Sorry but that's where my mind goes.

Hey I don't intend to be mean, just frustrated with new designers these days. This is exactly why. If one thinks differently speak your mind. It's not a bash it's more of appalled at what is being considered a logo or brand. In fact I'm quite speechless at how many cannot see the difference in good design and good brandablity and conceptual work.

And it's not your fault, I understand it's a %22school%22 project. But it's for sale now and shocked at that not your experience.

Actually it is nothing to do any sexual activity. It's a brand created for a soap, which you can carry with yourself and make you not touch the soaps or soap automates everybody touches. If there is really something wrong about the name I can start to search a new one. But actually if your critics would be beneficial ( saying what is wrong ) I will be glad. And I think there is nothing wrong to try my luck about selling it .

OK fair enough. I think the name is wrong, well especially now. The concept of the hand forming and H and M is not working so either needs to be ditched or executed differently. Your Tagline is way to small proportionally. Your Hand does not look like a hand at all. Maybe just do a nice hand with nice type and call it like Handy Soap or something.

Not aiming this just at you Uni.Q but some people need to learn the difference between making a logo for fun and attempting to sell a brand identity

The circa 1980's type is helping this logo much either...

LOL @ Firebrand. C'mon man, you can't use recycled jokes, no matter how good they are.

Actually, I take that back. And I would also definitely recommend removing or changing the tagline too. %22The soap you can never leave%22 definitely does not take away from the sexual innuendos.
