I'm gonna be honest: this is so underwhelming that it barely qualifies as a logo. If more than 10 minutes were spent on this, between turning on the computer to uploading it here, I'd be amazed. It's basically just two fonts on top of each other. That's pretty much it. And they are not even properly centered, let alone kerned.

I find not on single brand value listed above in this word mark. And most of the time, I find it to be the opposite of what the brand claims to be. It's not cheerful, approachable or fun, it's austere, unappealing and utterly boring.

I had a look at the Hatchbeauty website. There are some really cool projects in it and this botched attempt at a logo isn't up to par by a long shot.

It's back to square 1, with this time way more market research, inspiration and and a lot of sketching.

Keep it up!

I feel like we are just completely missing the entirety of this brand.

I understand that Hatch works on beauty products, and most beauty products need packaging for the brand to really come alive.

However we should be able to see SOME kind of refinement with the stand alone logo, and this is incredibly underwhelming. I would be curious to see how this is going to be sold on an actual bottle.

I'd like to come back a bit on my initial comment.

I think what doesn't serve this logo is that it's on its own. If it was presented within its environment, with a clear and well-crafted additional graphic elements, it may look more at its advantage.

I sense that it could look killer if it was the case. If it's so, I'm ready to fully revise my initial judgment.
