Title: Sling logo?
Post by Kick on Dec 1st, 2019 at 4:02am
Recently we went to a restaurant here in Helsinki which is Hawaiian inspired. Amazingly good food I have to say but what was particularly investing was their logo. I haven't been able to confirm it but... that's a sling right? Definitely not a spear, unlikely to be an oar or club, it must be a sling! What do you guys think?

Not sponsored by the way, but, if you are in Helsinki sometime, I recommend them :D

Possibly.† Although because the ends appear to protruded past the hands, I would guess a short staff or stick weapon.† Something like the Japanese jo.† Could be a sling though.† A very interesting image.

Considering that itís a restaurant, I was thinking it might be a spoon.

Thereís a fancy restaurant in San Antonio that ran an ad campaign with a similar looking primitive figure holding a giant fork and the phrase ďhunt no moreĒ.  If youíre going for the look of a cave painting, proportions donít have to really be realistic. I still think itís a spoon :)

    It could be a sling but it could be a lot of other things too.

Yeah it's very hard to tell what it is. The fact that it's not entirely straight makes it seem more like a sling but yeah.

A good logo should be uniquely recognizable even when very small and at low resolutions.

CA, youíd better hope that I donít get your name for SITH... Iíll laser engrave a poo emoji on your sling instead!
