  • \$\begingroup\$ It's a bit complicated... ideally a logo should look good at any size and resolution. \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ text font on the middle text is VERY good but the octopus is a bit... "childrens comic book" -like, very well drawn though. \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ I think it is nice but when it is in red it seems to fit quickly in with Sparkfun. Meaning, if I saw sparkfun and this chip hacker logo in some links i would assume they are related if not from the same group. This could be a good thing, btw. just a thought. But it has my vote, for sure \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ Im a bit undecided about this one. Its very clean and polished but no reference to electronics in the logo (little resistors or something). \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ the black background and white text looks pretty cool, one of the best with maybe some cool color shading/gradient colors. \$\endgroup\$
