Red Peak looks like a logo, we're not a corporation we don't need a logo.



Redpeak is the only flag that doesn't look like a logo... :eh:
Besides, isn't writing points that support my view, the very purpose of an opinion/education piece?

looking at this bit it, i think he is making shit up, the red peak has no Fibonacci ratios or key points on images divided in 3rds of the image. lets draw some random lines on the southern cross to show its bad.

Yes, but it works in terms of how its symmetry and balance, handle the positive and negative space; The components exist with real harmony. This visual harmony just does not exist in the other examples. They literally just tossed all the components together. Its kinda hard to illustrate, so forgive me for trying. The phrase "writing about music, is like dancing about architecture" springs to mind - Trying to writing about design is sometimes the same.

TBH, none of them.

I like the simplicity and history of the union jack and southern cross.

I like blue and red and dislike black on a flag so that limits the choice.

i didn't say the other flags were better (though I like the way all the ferns draw the eyes). I just said his analysis was shit (or disingenuous).
has he messed with the flags aspect ratios or are the wrong in zomits original post?

as for symmetry and harmony of the red peak, it may have symmetry but it has no harmony (if i new more about writhing about music i would put in a simile)

The Australian and New Zealand flags are closer in design than Red Peak and the Peak Engineering logo.
This entry from the top 40'is geometrically much more similar to the Peak Engineering logo:

Are all chevron based designs inherently ruled out due to similarity to other designs/logos?
