  Hotbox Studios' identity redesign


The new brandmark (logo) is a significant improvement on the old identity. It's clean, modern and has a strong iconic symbol.

The new identity is unique and distinctive. However, the branding of Hotbox Studios comes across as a design-led exercise, hence the 'designery' option and final result. Design-led work is fine for businesses developing organically on tight budgets but the results tend to be conceptually flat and the process quite generic.

What is the brand idea? An H and a B in a box? I get 'one colon one', despite the clever use of negative space. I don't get any of the excitement I expect from animation. I think the solution is far too static and corporate.

It's better but not hot.
